+ - Death by defibrillator: FDA called to address hacking risk->

DJRumpy writes: "It sounds like a scenario out of a James Bond movie: a villain spots his quarry and uses a small device to hack into the official’s heart defibrillator, sending a signal for mayhem. There’s chest grabbing, and a collapse, and alarms, but the bad guy walks free because there’s no gun, knife, poison dart — no evidence at all a murder has been committed."
