Many medical devices 20 years ago were strictly firmware driven with no internet and going back to that would solve a lot of these malware problems.
So were home computers
Yeah like my Texas Instrument (TI) 99/4A and Apple //c. They did have dial-up modems either for me. I get one for my IBM PS/2 Model 30 286 10 Mhz!

Maybe not the internet directly, but say they have a network between hospitals (and in my mom's case can look up all her records/stats/etc online). Wasn't there a article about a guy who hacked a insulin pump?

I can see the point of interconnecting their machinery within their own local network, but what does a medical facility gain by connecting their medical equipment to the internet?
