quoted from the article:
"Communication with the implant has to occur at skin contact level distance," said Dr Farra.
"Someone across the room cannot re-programme your implant.
"Then we have secure encryption. That prevents someone from trying to interpret or intervene between the communications."

I've heard these types of claims with other computer systems. And they all turned out to be hackable from a distance. For example, your wifi has a limited range. But a hacker can access it from a greater distance using an inexpensive homemade device made from a Pringles can. It's a directional antenna.

And the claim about the communication being secure is highly doubtful. This is a very sick use of technology, in any case.
