International researchers have discovered serious vulnerabilities within 10 different types of medical implants – with potentially fatal consequences, reports BBC.co.uk. The researchers, hailing from the University of Leuven in Belgium and the University of Birmingham, identified the vulnerabilities within the radio-based communications that are used to update the implants. Through exploiting the flaws, researchers were able to adjust settings of devices, which include pacemakers, and even switch them off entirely. The attacks were also able to steal confidential patient data. While many implants work autonomously, many use short-range wireless communication to assist with data retrieval on the devices efficaciousness. Each implant is made by one, as-yet unnamed, company, and a software patch has now been created to mitigate these issues
