Our only hope?

No-one's going to update these insecure IoT devices that are already installed, and there will always be new insecure devices being sold by the latest manufacturers at the lowest possible price.

Our only hope is to make the exploits known, release the source code, and rely on competing groups of miscreants spreading the DDoS more-or-less evenly over their targets, diluting the effect. The internet equivalent of the Bangkok rush hour... everyone gets to work... eventually.
