(WEHT)-The Food and Drug Administration is sounding the alarm about security issues with some medical devices.
The agency issued a warning that some pacemakers, glucose monitors and ultrasound devices are vulnerable to hackers and can pose a serious health risk to patients.
The devices allow interference with the bluetooth wireless connection.
The FDA says hackers can manipulate the security flaws to access, re-program and even shut down the devices.
So far there are no reports of breaches related to the problem.
