Medical IoT Devices Vulnerable to Cyberattacks: CyberMDX
Earlier, security researchers from CyberMDX revealed that an anaesthetic machine can be hacked and controlled remotely if left accessible on a hospital computer network. The researchers discovered a security flaw in a number of GE Healthcare devices used by the National Healthcare Services (NHS) hospitals that could allow hackers to manipulate the amount of anaesthetic delivered to patients. CyberMDX stated that the remotely exploitable flaw could enable hackers to silence device alarms, alter the date and time settings, adjust anaesthetic dosages, and switch anaesthetic agents.
