Thousands of insulin pumps being recalled due to hacking risk

News

(WIVB)– Thousands of insulin pumps are being recalled because of a hacking risk. Medtronic is recalling its mini-med insulin pumps.

The FDA says someone could connect wirelessly, then potentially hack into the devices, change the settings, and deliver too much or too little insulin.

Medtronic is providing alternative insulin pumps to patients that have enhanced built-in cybersecurity features.
