"The Implant Was Fatal, At Least On TV"

Gina Kolata's October 29, 2013 NY Times article "The Implant Was Fatal, At Least On  TV" (page D1), discusses Dick Cheney's decision to have the wireless functionality of his pacemaker disabled.

University of Michigan Professor and TerraSwarm Researcher Kevin Fu is quoted in the article:
"My opinion is it is probably unlikely that a remote attack of this nature could happen today,"
Professor Fu emphasized the word "probably" and was later quoted as saying "There can always be a flaw we are unaware of".

The article is available on the NY Times website as "Of Fact, Fiction and Cheney's Defibrillator".
