<p>Under investigation is an infusion pump from Hospira , implantable heart devices from Medtronic and St Jude Medica.</p>
<p>There is no indication that hackers have been attacking patients through these devices, but the agency is concerned that malicious people may try to gain control of the devices remotely and create problems, such as instructing an infusion pump to overdose a patient with drugs, or forcing a heart implant to deliver a deadly jolt of electricity. <a href="http://channeleye.co.uk/medical-gear-hacked/" class="read_more">more&#187;</a></p><div class="feedflare">
