Body Hacking

“And computers are getting smarter all the time: scientists tell us that soon they will be able to talk to us. (By they I mean computers: I doubt scientists will ever be able to talk to us.)”
-Dave Barry

Scary story of the day:

Black Hat researcher shows it is possible to remotely control a diabetic's insulin pump without person's knowledge

Bottom Line

Technology is wonderful but most inventors and companines fail to take security seriously. Hackers can turn off pace markers and most any other medical device that responds to remote signals. If your life depends on technology, ask your doctor about the risks of hacking or even "Noise" or magnetic fields disabling your device.
