Hacking Vulnerable Medical Equipment Puts Millions at Risk - InformationWeek

This threat has been in novels and tv shows for years, but now is being exploited for both monetary gain and possible terrorism threats. The warnings have been out there for years, but hospitals and medical device manufacturing, have done nothing. Now we need to take action. That a device your surgeon puts in your body can be hacked and used to kill you while out to dinner, is just not acceptable. That medical devices used in hospitals, can be hacked, and then used to change medical data, like prescriptions is also just not acceptable. Changes need to be made now.
