I agree.
Technology as increasing day by day data is becoming more secure and the protection of that is more important .

It should be kept in a safe environment as to prevent from the unauthorized viewing.

Hack?
The hack is that with physical access to a pump you can figure out what drugs are being injected? Can't you just figure that out by reading the display?

 

There's more to this, right??

Not surprising
The sad aspect to this IoT discussion is that ANY wireless item of any kind (and I have a wireless defibulator inside of me so write from experience) has an associated IP address - obviously - associated with it and, therefore, a door for a hacker.  Does not matter WHAT type of device!!!  If it has a number and that protocol is not protected somewhere down the path, well - there you go.  Just follow the yellow IP road to Oz.
