This is not the only Medical device susceptible to hacking. Pacemakers todrug prescription machines have proven hackable. Not to mention lab testing equipment and drug dispensing equipment as well. Most Hospitals and Doctors offices are notoriously vulnerable to hackers, there's just so much of the new technology that is iP based, and often not secured correctly. It takes a lot of constant work to keep just basic security, then add to that software and firmware patches that are required regularly, it quickly becomes pretty unmanageable.
