Genre: Horror

The latest medical break-thru allows patients with congestive heart disease to be implanted with Internet connected heart regulators. This technology has saved countless lives while allowing the patient’s Doctors to remotely monitor their health.

Each implant has it’s own specific Internet Protocol (IP) address.

Boss has one such implant.

Unfortunately, Boss was a tyrant to his employees of mostly engineers.

One day, Boss develops a cough, his heart fails, and he dies.

It was a hacking cough.
