Yes, "the net has a huge IoT problem” already, and it's getting bigger by the hour.

You could almost think that the very idea of IoT as such was conceived by someone who always dreamt of shutting down the internet... Quite ironic, come to think of it. The original idea was to build a network that would survive a nuclear war between superpowers. Now it looks like it will be destroyed by our security cams and toasters.
