(KRON)—A warning to patients who use a certain Johnson and Johnson insulin pump: you could be targeted by hackers.
The company says its Animas OneTouch Ping insulin pump has a bug that could be potential cyber-security risk.
Hackers could hijack the device and force it to deliver unauthorized and possibly lethal insulin doses.
But Johnson and Johnson says the probability of that happening is extremely low and there have not been any reports of actual attempts to hack the device.
More than 100,000 patients use the Animas insulin pump.
