Hospital Medical Devices Used as Weapons in Cyberattacks
Interesting story.

excerpt from article Wrote:"Insulin pumps, heart monitors, x-ray communications systems and other medical devices already have been proven vulnerable to cyberattack by security researchers, but a new report confirms that hospital medical devices are being abused by cybercriminals and possibly cyberspies as a stepping-stone within healthcare networks to nab valuable healthcare identities and information."

Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.
