“For the next 24 hours, every time you see the word ‘software’ substitute ‘vulnerable or hackable’ and every time you see ‘connected’ substitute ‘exposed.’ So if you take a toaster which is perfectly safe and put software onto it, you have a vulnerable toaster. And if you give that toaster an IP address, you have a vulnerable, exposed toaster.”
