Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
How they are updated should be a consideration before onboarding any IOT device.

Re: Affected devices
With the sheer number of devices you would need them to check into a hub locally and then check in remotely. Either way thats going to be heavy on network throughput.

Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
Most definitely and I think they should continue to prioritize health objectives ahead of security when medical devices can save lives. But there still needs to be security in mind because if not then those same devices could be used to cause harm.

Updates and repairs
This could prove tricky, he notes, as medical devices are critical and may not be available for updates at any time. Yes. All these devices should get updates remotely. Maybe having spares so no need to wait for the repairs.

Affected devices
For hospitals, the challenging part is finding those affected devices," says Luz. If you're responsible for security at a hospital with 10,000 connected products of different models and vendors, locating the vulnerable ones will be difficult. This would be almost impossible unless devices somehow scan able remotely.

Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
Unfortunately, in many cases such as this I noticed that the HCP is slow to react historically. I agree. Also I do not believe neither hospitals nor medical provided accept dramatic change in their processes so that makes it harder.

Re: "the company can't update devices directly"
This puts the accountability back on the healthcare providers that are providing these devices. I agree. Most these devices were build convenience in mind so security will certainly suffer.

CVE-2020-15208
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, when determining the common dimension size of two tensors, TFLite uses a `DCHECK` which is no-op outside of debug compilation modes. Since the function always returns the dimension of the first tensor, malicious attackers can ...
CVE-2020-15209
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, a crafted TFLite model can force a node to have as input a tensor backed by a `nullptr` buffer. This can be achieved by changing a buffer index in the flatbuffer serialization to convert a read-only tensor to a read-write one....
CVE-2020-15210
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In tensorflow-lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, if a TFLite saved model uses the same tensor as both input and output of an operator, then, depending on the operator, we can observe a segmentation fault or just memory corruption. We have patched the issue in d58c96946b and ...
CVE-2020-15211
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 1.15.4, 2.0.3, 2.1.2, 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, saved models in the flatbuffer format use a double indexing scheme: a model has a set of subgraphs, each subgraph has a set of operators and each operator has a set of input/output tensors. The flatbuffer format uses indices f...
CVE-2020-15212
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-25
In TensorFlow Lite before versions 2.2.1 and 2.3.1, models using segment sum can trigger writes outside of bounds of heap allocated buffers by inserting negative elements in the segment ids tensor. Users having access to `segment_ids_data` can alter `output_index` and then write to outside of `outpu...
