The only thing he can do in this direction is suing them. Then he needs to prove that what he says is correct and that the company did it on purpose.
Most companies especially in biomedical have more cash that any individual and tend to stall these kinds of trials just to inflate the costs for the other party that has less cash.
Perhaps I have a simple minded view on life but if it were me I know what I would be doing with that sort of knowledge and it would not be espousing it to the world at large for any lunatic / scumbag to put to whatever use they wish.
It's not optimal and exposes people to danger, but it's the fastest, cheapest and surest way to get the companies move their lazy asses and fix the issue, and keep an eye on this for the future as it sets a precedent. Any other realistic way would be longer and more expensive, putting the same people in danger for longer.
By making it common knowledge, anyone can lie and claim one of his relatives that died with one of the bugged products (for any actual reason, like say old age) died because of the company's wrongdoing. Being a serious offense this is going to be persecuted by the state so there is no point in trying to out-cash the opponent. And would likely win as it's hard to prove it's not their fault.
This is a major risk of significant financial loss and PR hit
for the company, that will do all in its power to fix everything asap just to avoid getting sued by a ton of crafty individuals that just want to get some cash and lose the face with its customers.
And this well before anyone will get hurt because of that.
Drones are also devices which are being hacked pretty much the same way,

I would like to know the reasoning behind putting two-way wireless connections on implants when anyone with a bit of IT experience knows that two-way wireless is and has always been a gigantic security hole in any network unless set up VERY well and constantly updated as older encryptions get cracked.
