Cyber Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Warns of High-Risk Cyber Vulnerability for Medtronic Cardiac Device Data Management System

CISA is warning of a significant, high-risk vulnerability in Medtronic’s Paceart Optima System, which is used to compile and manage patients’ cardiac device data. CISA says the system’s versions 1.11 and prior are at risk of exploitation by unauthorized users, who can then perform remote code executions or launch denial-of-service attacks. The latter could slow or render the system unresponsive.
