"Hacking researcher Barnaby Jack has died (somehow) a week before a conference where he was going to present techniques for attacking heart implants that could kill people from 30 yards away.
The hacker had previously highlighted the techniques for hacking ATM’s and had raised the issue of implant hacking last year."
"The San Francisco medical examiner's office has said it could be several months before the cause of death for acclaimed hacker Barnaby Jack is released.
Jack, who was born in New Zealand, was famous for hacking implanted medical devices and ATMs. He was found dead in San Francisco on 25 July.
A San Francisco police department spokesperson told the Guardian Jack was found dead by "a loved one" in an apartment in the city's Nob Hill neighborhood and that no foul play was suspected.
Jack lived in San Francisco, where he worked as the director of embedded security research at security firm IOActive. The company said Jack was survived by his mother and sister in New Zealand and his girlfriend in California."
