Medtronic Disables Updates For Pacemaker Programmer Due To Vulnerability, Israel’s National Emergency Service Websites Exposed Patient Data
In addition, a white hat hacker found serious security flaws in the websites of Magen David Adom, Israel’s national emergency medical, disaster, ambulance and blood bank service, that exposed the data of volunteers and patients. Simply by changing the parameters on the websites, the hacker said that he could access patient data such as names, addresses, phone numbers, ID numbers, and credit card details. He could also control and download the entire database through a volunteer website, and rewrite code to shut down the system and disrupt ambulance service. Magen David Adom has taken down all affected websites.
