Health-care sector vulnerable to hackers, researchers say

http://j.mp/12NLpbw  (Washington Post)

  "As the health-care industry rushed onto the Internet in search of
   efficiencies and improved care in recent years, it has exposed a wide
   array of vulnerable hospital computers and medical devices to hacking,
   according to documents and interviews.  Security researchers warn that
   intruders could exploit known gaps to steal patients' records for use
   in identity theft schemes and even launch disruptive attacks that
   could shut down critical hospital systems."
