Hacking these medical pumps is as easy as copying a booby-trapped file over the network

My only question is ...

... who in the fuck thinks that critical care medical equipment like infusion and syringe pumps need network connectivity in the first place? This kind of equipment is monitored IN REAL TIME BY HUMANS, 24/7! That's what "critical care" means, for gawd/ess's sake! A network connection is completely and utterly meaningless in this kind of situation ... unless you're a marketing "genius", of course.
