A lot of hackers draw the line at medical equipment. I remember a Harvard study a few years ago where they put out a few honeypots disguised as network connected heart monitors, and other various medical equipment. As soon as hackers realized what they were connected to, basically all of them immediately disconnected and left them alone. I guess not everyone is so nice.
