ISSUE: The FDA, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT), and Hospira are aware of cybersecurity vulnerabilities associated with the Symbiq Infusion System. FDA strongly encourages health care facilities transition to alternative infusion systems, and discontinue use of these pumps.
Hospira and an independent researcher confirmed that Hospira’s Symbiq Infusion System could be accessed remotely through a hospital’s network. This could allow an unauthorized user to control the device and change the dosage the pump delivers, which could lead to over- or under-infusion of critical patient therapies. The FDA and Hospira are currently not aware of any patient adverse events or unauthorized access of a Symbiq Infusion System in a health care setting.
Hospira has discontinued the manufacture and distribution of the Symbiq Infusion System, due to unrelated issues, and is working with customers to transition to alternative systems. However, due to recent cybersecurity concerns, the FDA strongly encourages health care facilities to begin transitioning to alternative infusion systems as soon as possible.
While these infusion pumps are currently not available for purchase through Hospira, the FDA is aware that the Symbiq Infusion System is potentially available for purchase from third parties not associated with Hospira. The FDA strongly discourages the purchase of the Symbiq Infusion System from these parties.
The FDA is actively investigating the situation based on current information. If new information becomes available about patient risks and any additional steps users should take, the FDA will communicate such information publicly. For additional information, see the FDA Safety Communication.
BACKGROUND: The Hospira Symbiq Infusion System is a computerized pump designed for the continuous delivery of general infusion therapy for a broad patient population.
It is primarily used in hospitals, or other acute and non-acute health care facilities, such as nursing homes and outpatient care centers. This infusion system can communicate with a Hospital Information System (HIS) via a wired or wireless connection over facility network infrastructures.
RECOMMENDATION: While transitioning to an alternative infusion system, consider taking the following steps to reduce the risk of unauthorized system access:
