Hack the Planet: Insulin Pumps, Pacemakers and Implanted Defibrillators Oh My!
Every day more and more devices are provided with network connectivity such as wireless and Bluetooth, however security considerations are not always taken into account during development and implementation phases. This has been a hot topic for years around digital and critical infrastructure and now the medical device community is the latest target. Millions of medical devices are in use around the world saving peoples lives every day; devices that are running custom software and have built in wireless capabilities. What happens if a developer leaves a backdoor or accidentally creates a vulnerability in the code? What happens if the doctor configures the device incorrectly? When this occurs in the digital world, there is the potential for loss of data or system compromise. In the medical device world, there is potentially a completely different outcome.
