Two previously undocumented, critical vulnerabilities in widely deployed medical devices have sparked patient-safety and data-privacy concerns.
Flaws in the Qualcomm Life Capsule Datacaptor Terminal Server and the Becton Dickinson (BD) Alaris TIVA Syringe Pump have been acknowledged by the vendors and publicly disclosed via ICS-CERT.
In the case of the Qualcomm Datacaptor, which was developed in partnership with Capsule Technologies, the hardware at issue is a terminal server – a small box that accepts serial connections from multiple devices and bridges them all to a standard network. It acts as a medical device gateway, connecting things like bedside monitors, respirators, anesthesia delivery systems and infusion pumps to the hospital network.
