GPS Spoofing

I've heard rumors of spoofing in and around Moscow as well as various sites in the US for a while. This seems to be happening on a much larger scale.

Quote:
On 22 June, the US Maritime Administration filed a seemingly bland incident report. The master of a ship off the Russian port of Novorossiysk had discovered his GPS put him in the wrong spot more than 32 kilometres inland, at Gelendzhik Airport.

After checking the navigation equipment was working properly, the captain contacted other nearby ships. Their AIS traces signals from the automatic identification system used to track vessels placed them all at the same airport. At least 20 ships were affected.

GPS Spoofing is real, and, to be honest, not that hard...

Defeating the software designed to detect and reject and/or notify the user of GPS (built into most critical receivers) is another matter.

How does WAAS fit in with a spoofing attack? Would the receiver & software see a conflict between the GPS info and the WAAS info?
