    It was bound to happen... When I first found about how some pacematers are tuned... Now we have insulin pumps that are aligned by way of a wireless connection. This is even dumber than putting aluminum in vaccines.
    Thank You Slashdot.org.....
    [h=2]McAfee Claims Successful Insulin Pump Attack[/h]
    judgecorp writes
    "Intel security subsidiary McAfee has claimed a successful wireless attack on insulin pumps that diabetics rely on to control blood sugar. While previous attempts to attack insulin pumps have met with mixed success, McAfee's Barnaby Jack says he has persuaded an insulin pump to deliver 45 days worth of insulin in one go, without triggering the pump's vibrating alert safety feature. All security experts still say that surgical implants are a benefit overall."

    Remind me again why I haven't asked for a Vegus nerve stimulator.

    Because what happens in Vegus stays in Vegus?

    We've had them since the mid-90's. Early ones (... at least the ones I'm familiar with) used a inductive coupler but I think that they're mostly RF today, in the 400-500MHz range but I'm not current on the tech.

    Wireless brain implants are featured in this movie. - There's an instructional video near the end.

    The Presidents Analyst: Look around 1:30:00 for the relevant section.
