Hack The Plane

cockpitWell, as usual, the government is far behind in acknowledging what many of us already knew (those of us in the hacking/security field). When you marry Wifi and other public connectivity with internal systems, hacking is always a possibility. I spoke about this in 2013, and now the US GAO (Government Accounting Office) has issued a report that hacking planes is certainly possible (they don’t reference any specific hacks, but with the rash of crashes lately, certainly makes you wonder doesn’t it?).

So while all of this isn’t really news it is stupid and irresponsible for some of these companies to put these systems together. If you want to read more on the story, you can find it here.
