Reportedly for the first time ever, the FDA recently issued a declaration that hospitals should not use a medical device manufactured by Hospira Inc. because of security flaws that could allow hackers to penetrate hospital computer networks, commandeer the pumps and manipulate the dosage given to patients. There has been no reporting hacking incident, but the warning about a specific device shows the increased vulnerability of medical devices to security compromises and the FDA’s concern over the security features of devices within its jurisdiction.
