Hacking Rhetoric

Red Post – Dick Cheney Feared Assassination Through Medical Device Hacking

Leave a comment

It has been heavily reported over the last 24 hours that Dick Cheney had taken specific actions to prevent his medical device from being hacked by cyberterrorists. Back in 2007, Dick Cheney received a medical device implanted in his heart to regulate his heartbeat. In order to decrease the likelihood of the device being hacked, he had the doctors disable the wireless features. Although on the surface this may seem like an overreaction, hacking via biotechnology could be a big part of cyberterrorism in the future. It will be very important as we roll out new biotechnology to make sure that each device in 100% unhackable to prevent the potential injury or murder of those individuals.
