This popped up in my feed yesterday and the government's inability to get serious about security is mind boggling. https://techcrunch.com/2016/12/28/f...elines-so-that-your-pacemaker-wont-get-hacked Recommendations? How about some hard and fast rules regarding security on devices that affect public safety? Vehicles and medical devices are just two things that don't have hard requirements regarding security and they should. Worst case scenarios would create the type of panic that a terrorist would just love to be responsible for. And what do you think would happen if someone figured a way to plant a time bomb in a pacemaker, requiring a hefty ransom payment in order to provide the code to deactivate the malware? Industry needs to be forced to take security seriously before releasing products that can be accessed remotely. Accountability is non-existent and the government is negligent by not coming out with concrete rules and requirements.
