@Ivan how do you know they are not already being bot hearded? I thought that they were connected via mobile access so apart from crashing mobile networks what is more likely to happen?

I do not know what they are capable of doing, hence the question. They might be too dumb to do anything much, but other experience suggests that will not be the case, an over capable off the shelf part more likely.
