Interesting but other than a Klaus von Bulow sort of scenario, I can't see too much motive. I also am inclined to be on top of my BG, I am not sure about other pumpers. I think that Sonia Sotomayor would be the most highly placed PWD of whom I'm aware and I think she does shots so she'd be safe from any sort of pump-attack?
I am just really not concerned about intentional hacking. I mean, most people can't even tell that I use an insulin pump, because it's generally hidden under my clothes, out of site. What are the chances someone would get my pump's serial number, KNOW I'm the one wearing that pump, and then be close enough to hack it? And who would want to go through all that trouble?
However, I think there is some value in Radcliffe's work - not the part about the intentional malicious hacking (because it just seems so remote to me), but more about the issues his work is uncovering with regard to wireless issues. I have always been worried, ever since Medtronic installed a wireless feature on their pump, about the possibility of my pump malfunctioning because of interferance from some other wireless device. There are so many wireless devices out there that it's bound to happen.
