It seems that there's another one about ... luckily, this "useful feature" can be disabled.


Johnson & Johnson's Animas division has issued a letter warning diabetes patients using its OneTouch Ping insulin pump that the device could be triggered remotely.

Discounting the possibility of an attack as "extremely low," the company nonetheless says that "a person could potentially gain unauthorized access to the pump through its unencrypted radio frequency communication system."

The OneTouch Ping consists of two components: the Insulin Pump, which delivers doses of insulin to patients, and the Meter Remote, which monitors the patient's blood glucose level and can signal the Insulin Pump from up to 10 feet away to inject the patient.


Actually (and sadly), there's more if you look. frown

Are any of these things being used in the UK? think
