This is scary for someone who wears a medical device, for sure. You never know these days.

i'm not sure i'd rely on my smartphone for any kind of life saving treatment! but the hacking of the pacemaker or insulin pump with the custom built transmitter is pretty scary for those people with the devices implanted

I'm not surprised, most modern smartphones are as powerful or more-so than PC's were only a few years ago and they don't linger that far behind either, with that comes many more opportunities to manipulate the technology that is no longer extremely limited.

Am I the only one wondering why it's even possible to make an ICD deliver an 830v (lethal) discharge? Why does this device even have a power source capable of delivering such a charge? On top of that, are there no fail-safes or circuit-breakers? /boggle

This guy's hack does point of possible scary scenarios in the future, but I'm just left wondering why it's even remotely possible to begin with.
