    @bladedemon think about most of the applications though

    if it's something like an arcade machine, a heart monitor, a motor controller for some assembly line conveyor belt... not much is lost in the case of, say, ransomware. If they're not even connected to a network there's not even a threat due to there not being a (used) attack vector.

    ATMs though? That's ASKING for a slots jackpot payload (almost typed "hackpot," which may have been more appropriate xD )
