Hackers can break your Heart.

Like literally stop it  ☠️💔. 1 min


Billy Rios, a security researcher, found out that peacemakers can be hacked and cause the death of patients with just a click of a button.

The Hack occurs because of the peacemaker 's insecure updates.

To patch this is very simple, yet the company behind the device Medtronic will not do it.

They are aware of the issue since 2017 when Billy and Jonathan Butts informed the firm.

Seems like a typical situation where the money comes first than patients.
