Cyber Vulnerabilities In Fighter Jets

I'd like to say that I am surprised but I'm not

Quote:
It was the first time outside researchers were allowed physical access to the critical F-15 system to search for weaknesses. And after two long days, the seven hackers found a mother lode of vulnerabilities that — if exploited in real life — could have completely shut down the Trusted Aircraft Information Download Station, which collects reams of data from video cameras and sensors while the jet is in flight.

They even found bugs that the Air Force had tried but failed to fix after the same group of hackers performed similar tests in November without actually touching the device.

Sort of explains the aircraft village at DefCon....

Physical access to the systems almost guarantees successful exploitation though. At that point, it’s a matter of when, not if.

High tech is a double edged sword. And not always from malicious intent.
