Medtronic is warning thousands of users of its older insulin pumps worldwide that the devices may contain a serious cybersecurity vulnerability allowing a malicious hacker to change drug-delivery settings and send the patient into a diabetic emergency.

The warning applies to Medtronic insulin pumps that were introduced to the market before 2013. The Homeland Security Department published an advisory about the issue Thursday.
