  1. Warning over medical implant attacks

    Security researchers have developed attacks that locate and compromise implants used to manage conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.

    One attack caught a radio signal that, if re-broadcast, would have switched off a heart defibrillator.


    Simply put anyone with criminal intent can harm innocent people so easily ........
