Has Anyone Experienced Malicious Hacking of Their CPAP Machine Remotely?

It didn't happen during the "normal" noonish schedule where the PAP reports to the mothership, as the telemedicine set-up appointment was at 2 p.m., and we were several minutes late getting started, as one tech had passed me off to another before I even got called. It seems feasible that perhaps the PAP checks in more frequently if it's still set at the default pressure range, of course.  

Receiving packets across a cell network which cause a near-instantaneous change on the device may not be "interactive," but it's not something I've seen done until now, with the AirSense 11.


From the ResMed AirView setup Guide:


Quote:Note: Changes in the settings will update the next day data is wirelessly retrieved.

Other events can force the device to connect to the network.
  • Ending a sleep session
  • Powering on the device

No, they don't have an internet connection so do not have an IP address. They use a cellular connection and call out.
