Its starting already.

Today I was watching ABC 7 news in L.A. when a blurb came on that said.

"Hackers hack Insulin pumps and other medical devices to overdose patients, are you at risk?"

Thats all comercial for the news stated, that was it, nothing more.

Went researching and this is what I found.

Black Hat Lethal Hack




Security researcher Jay Radcliffe is a diabetic who is connected to an insulin pump and glucose monitor at all times. He said that combination of devices turned him into a Human SCADA system. Radcliffe decided to find out if proprietary wireless communication could be reverse-engineered and a device used to launch an injection attack that would manipulate a diabetic's insulin and possibly cause a patient's death. At the Black Hat security conference, Radcliffe is sharing his findings in his presentation called, "Hacking Medical Devices for Fun and Insulin: Breaking the Human SCADA System."




So this was a proof of concept done by someone who knows security systems to see if it was possible, and the news turns it into HACKERS KILLING PEOPLE? really ? wth?

That is the news for you. The government wants everyone labeled a terrorist so that we will all fear and tell on each other. Just like Nazi Germany. This story should hit national news soon, and then everyone will turn on hackers and want more security on the Webz.

To be fair, hackers are terrorists by definition. That being said, terrorism against an evil entity will surely be viewed as just

Does anyone else think this is like when they came out with the Body Scanners, and then after that mentioned that women with explosives injected in their breast implants, that their implants cannot be detected by those scanners?

They just up the threat, and no matter what protection extreme devices they come out with, it will never be enough, they will make up another threat to force you to give in to more intrusion.

There are tons of people that do crazy stuff and you don't go calling all of them terrorists. When a guy gets drunk and runs his truck into some people..do you going banging on the doors of General Motors screaming terrorists?

Thats like saying weed leads to heroin, Hacker does not equal killer.

Ive hacked and modded many of my own electronics, that by definition makes me a Hacker, I guess that makes me a terrorist and killer by your definition.

Guess Gitmo here i come...
