Build a bot net to shut down insecure devices

Build a bot net to shut down insecure devices when found. The resulting failures would force security and password upgrades by the public. And the DOS that hits manufacturers CS lines with irate customers would force them to fix their security flaws FAST. Someone will cry illegal, but there is no other way to effectively end the threat. It would just take some bot net building knowledge and some courage.
