A tech security evaluation has found a whopping 8,000 software vulnerabilities in the code of pacemakers.
Security research firm WhiteScope carried out the assessment on implantable cardiac devices, physician programmers and home monitoring devices for four major manufacturers.
The researchers found a worrying consistency across all vendors, highlighting inherent system weaknesses in file system encryption and storage of unencrypted patient data.
The report notes that pacemaker security faces “some serious challenges”.
