I was sure there was a forum post on wireless pump security but I couldn’t find it.

But theres more news today of a further pump security vunerability on the medtronic wireless pump http://www.theregister.co.uk/2011/10/27/fatal_insulin_pump_attack/

Unless the medtronic is super quiet & vibration free I seriously doubt whether a ‘fatal dose’ could be given without noticing, I notice mine chugging away in a contented manner whenever it starts delivering insulin, although adjusting the basal thats a possibility.

I thought it was good of the researcher to point out that 10 years ago manufacturers weren’t as bothered as they should be by security concerns, I’ve stuck the link in as interesting reading rather than anything we should be worried about (unless you’re likely to be on someones assasination list) and even then only if your death musn’t be suspicious…

Thats probably not many of us worldwide!
