Hackers could kill #patients by #attacking their #pacemakers, warns #Royal Academy of Engineering

Hackers could kill patients by attacking their pacemakers or heart pumps, the Royal Academy of Engineering has warned.

In a new report, security experts warned that health tech is vulnerable to cyberattacks which could have ‘severe consequences’ for patient safety.

The RAENG warned that the number of the number of healthcare devices which are susceptible to hacking is growing which not only poses a threat to individuals, but also provides a way to gain access to entire networks.

The experts cautioned that pacemakers or wearable health monitors which are linked up to the internet or internal computer networks could also provide a gateway for hackers to plant ransomware into systems, potentially crippling in the NHS or government departments.

Some US hospitals have already been infected by the Wannacry and Medjack computer viruses after hackers targeted medical devices which were not protected.

Professor Nick Jennings, a fellow of the RAENG and Vice Provost at Imperial College London said: “There is genuine harm that can be done through poor cyber security on medical devices, on future-connected homes, on autonomous vehicles, and if they are not dealt with then that will lead to harms and deaths.

City’s Success Academy charter schools come out in support of transgender students

The operator of the city’s largest charter school network has come out in support of transgender kids and immigrant students, as new federal policies are fill some local families with fear.

In the letter sent to home to families and delivered to staffers Monday, Success Academy network founder Eva Moskowitz urged educators, students and parents to guard against the bullying of transgender students after the Trump administration moved to revoke federal guidelines allowing those kids to use restrooms that correspond to their gender identity.

Moskowitz wrote the federal changes would not affect policies at her schools allowing transgender kids to use the bathrooms they prefer.

A lot has been said about the video that surfaced recently of the charter school teacher belittling her student for not doing what was on her paper. That teacher’s boss, Eva Moskowitz, may have more in common with Richard Nixon, of all people, than you’d think.

Cyber security firm owner creates Hacker Academy

Steve Barone, the owner and CEO of CBI, got his start in business selling Atari and Commodore home computers in an East Detroit shop in the 1980s. The native Detroiter dropped out of Wayne State University, but found a job he enjoyed and paid the bills. He also sold PCs for ITT Courier, and later, decided to started his own firm, Creative Breakthroughs Inc., which now specializes in information technology and goes by the initials CBI. This year, the company moved its headquarters from Ferndale to Detroit. “Computer security is a very real issue today,” Barone, 51, said. “I got a text this morning from a third party that made it sound like my bank account had been actioned from somewhere. I isolated the link, put it on a separate laptop, opened it up in a protected browser, and found out it was a hacking attempt.” CBI — which has about 100 employees and expects sales of $52 million this year — also offers workers and companies opportunities to learn new information technology skills and test their security in what Barone has playfully named the Cyber Range and the Hacking Academy. In the next few years, he said, he aims to take the company public. Barone — whose name is pronounced with the long e at the […]

INDIANAPOLIS —The head of an Indianapolis gymnastics academy is facing state and federal child molestation and child pornography charges.

Marion County prosecutors charged 48-year-old Marvin Sharp with four counts of child molestation and three counts of sexual misconduct with a minor Monday. Prosecutors allege Sharp took inappropriate photographs and repeatedly touched a young woman inappropriately while he was her gymnastics coach.

Federal prosecutors have charged Sharp with knowing receipt of child pornography and knowing possession of child pornography. They say investigators found thousands of sexually explicit images of minors in a safe in Sharp’s home and more in a file cabinet at his gymnasium.
