Hackers could target drugs database planned by the EU, experts warn | Daily Mail Online.

An EU plan to log drugs sold at chemists on a national database could threaten confidentiality, experts have warned.

Under changes due to come into effect by 2018, every packet of medicine passed over the counter in Britain will have a unique serial number which will be recorded on a centralised computer system.

This number can be scanned at the point it is given to the patient, verifying it is legitimate.

hmm don`t like the sound of this …knowing exactly what bottle of medicine you are taking ….
