Submission + - Recall after bug causes touchscreen to display wrong dose on infusion pump (securityledger.com)

chicksdaddy writes: "The steady drumbeat of disturbing news about vulnerable, IP enabled medical devices continues this week, after medical device maker Hospira said it has issued a voluntary recall of its Symbiq-brand drug infusion pumps after discovering a software error that may cause touch interfaces on the pumps to not respond to user touches or to display dosage information that is inaccurate.
The problem was detected in around 1.5% of Symbiq One Channel and Two Channel Infusers (model numbers 16026 and 16027), but could potentially affect "all Symbiq infusion systems currently in the field." The software bug could result in “a delayed response and or the screen registering a different value from the value selected by the user,” the company said in a statement."
