Lab instruments may be leaking patient data, study finds

Lab instruments, including DNA synthesizers, could leak valuable information and pose a security threat, according to a study by University of California researchers. The researchers found that by analyzing the sounds produced by the components of a DNA synthesizer, they could determine the type of DNA being produced. This information could potentially be used by hackers to create harmful viruses. The researchers recommend implementing security measures such as controlling access to the machines and removing recording devices left nearby.
