Submission + - Hacking a pacemaker

jonkman sean writes: University researchers conducted research into how they can gain wireless access to pacemakers, hacking them. This story is covered in the New York Times as well as CNET. They will be presenting their findings at the "Attacks" session of the 2008 IEEE Symposium on Security and Privacy. Their previous work noted that over 250,000 implantable cardiac defibrillators are installed in patients each year. This subject [Wired] was first raised along with similar issues as a credible security risk in Gadi Evron's CCC Camp 2007 lecture "hacking the bionic man".
