Researcher Roots Out Security Flaws In Insulin Pumps

As a man with a dear family member reliant on a wireless medical device, these articles always disturb me.  This is not a new problem or revelation.  I watched a demonstration of a similar exploit more than 5 years ago at an RSA Conference.  My biggest concern is the fact that these types of vulnerabilities have existed for this long and yet are not properly addressed.  The number of devices in the IoT category are growing at an exponential rate, so the need to address these types of security concerns in a timely matter is growing exponentially as well.
