A few years ago, Vint Cerf gave a keynote speech at a conference, where he
claimed that there were 140 million pwned devices on the Internet - and this
was before IoT was itself a thing.

Not one person in the security industry called bullshit and said the number
was too high.  There were however a lot of people who thought Cerf had
significantly lowballed the estimate.
