32c3 Review: Unpatchable – Living with a vulnerable implanted device

Marie Moe (@MarieGMoe) is a young associate professor for security research at sintef in Norway. And she has a pacemaker.

So naturally, she started to research a bit: What kind of wireless interfaces are implemented in a pacemaker? Which information is shared with other parties about her? How do you deal with bugs in such a system?

In this talk she and Eireann Leverett (@blackswanburst) talk about the implications of these issues. The term “critical infrastructure” is the one which kept me thinking a lot.
