An article in the June 9, edition of Healthcare IT News asks: "How would you like a devious Christian Slater breaking into your doctor’s computers, altering the dosages on your prescriptions? No? Well, HP has created a video series to show you just what would happen in that scenario." The article paraphrases Slater's narrative in the HP Studios, Lance Acord directed, second part of "The Wolf" HP Print and Device Security web video series: "Wolves hunt for the weak, he says... he finds weaknesses in a hospital’s security stance, implanting malware that enables him to alter the dosage of the chief information security officer’s medications, knocking him out of the picture, and to steal millions of patient records. Ill-secured computers and printers do nothing to stop the crafty Christian Slater, The Wolf."
It goes on to quote Cindy Ibaibarriaga of HP Print Security marketing: “Last year, more than 4 billion data records were compromised worldwide, representing a 400 percent increase over the previous two years..." with The Wolf series elevating awareness, globally, that, "corporate networks can be hacked through real vulnerabilities in under-secured printers and PCs.”
