Hacking into human hearts

Posted at 11:27 AM on March 12, 2008 by Jon Gordon

Security expert Bruce Schneier reacts to research that shows heart defibrilators are theoretically open to mischievous hackers:

The risks are there, but the benefits of these devices are much greater. The point of this research isn't to help people hack into pacemakers and commit murder, but to enable medical device companies to design better implantable equipment in the future. I think it's great work.

More to come...
