Of interest
I have a wireless defibulator inside of me - made by Boston Scientific.  Ir regularly posts condition status to a wireless receiver in my kitchen attached to a phone.  Seems simple enough but consider this as an IoT device, i wonder just what related data is transmitted and what can be associated with it upon reception.  One has to trust that somewhere in Emory Hospital the walls are rather well up (one never knows) but .,,,,, so long as a hacker does not turn me OFF????

That is precisely why doctors disabled the wireless function in Dick Cheney's pacemaker.  To thwart hackers killing him.

Re: Of interest
Politics aside, good reason to disable that on a "pacemaker" --- my defib is a close cousin but not so much of a threat in that regard.  Still, shows the significance above on a wireless pacemarker as an IoT device used in important public people.
