"Pacemakers, insulin pumps and other devices in hospitals harbour security problems that leave them vulnerable to attack, two separate studies warn."

BBC: One study solely on pacemakers found more than 8,000 known vulnerabilities in code inside the cardiac devices.

'The other study of the broader device market found only 17% of manufacturers had taken steps to secure gadgets.

'The reports come soon after more than 60 health organisations in the UK fell victim to a cyber-attack.'
