FDA says St. Jude heart devices vulnerable to hacking

 

January 10, 2017



Federal regulators said Monday that scores of pacemakers and implantable heart defibrillators made by St. Jude Medical are vulnerable to computer hacking, but a security patch is ready to address the problem.

On Monday, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration published a public safety notice confirming it is possible for a hacker to remotely compromise security in St. Jude's wireless communication network and then secretly change commands in a pacemaker or implantable defibrillator while it's still wired to a patient's heart.
