2019年10月1日星期二(健康日报) - 美国食品和药物管理局周二警告,可以与互联网连接的医疗器械可能面临黑客攻击风险。

该警告涉及几种可能影响与网络连接的医疗设备的操作系统,如Wi-Fi和公共或家庭网络,以及路由器,手机和其他通信装备,如路由器,手机和其他通信装备。攻击者可能会利用这些漏洞并控制医疗设备,更改其功能,导致拒绝服务,或导致信息泄漏。还可以介绍逻辑缺陷,这可能导致设备无法正常工作或根本不正常工作。但是,到目前为止,FDA尚未收到被黑客攻击的设备的任何报告。

“While we are not aware of patients who may have been harmed by this particular cybersecurity vulnerability, the risk of patient harm if such a vulnerability were left unaddressed could be significant,” Suzanne Schwartz, M.D., M.B.A., deputy director of the Office of Strategic Partnerships and Technology Innovation in the FDA Center for Devices and Radiological Health, said in a statement. “The safety communication issued today contains recommendations for what actions patients, health care providers, and manufacturers should take to reduce the risk this vulnerability could pose. It’s important for manufacturers to be aware that the nature of these vulnerabilities allows the attack to occur undetected and without user interaction.”

这些漏洞在软件中称为IPNet,即计算机用于通过网络进行通信。包括IPNet的系统是:VxWorks(由Wind River),操作系统嵌入(OSE; by Enea),完整性(由Green Hills),Threadx(由Microsoft),Itron(由Tron)和Zebos(通过IP Infusion)。

FDA正在与制造商合作,以识别可能易受攻击的产品,并制定计划以阻止任何潜在的漏洞。
