Posted by on Apr 12, 2013 in News | 0 comments

PlaneSploit can theoretically hack an aircraft. It is, in any case, what an engineer has highlighted at the conference “Hack in The Box” in the Netherlands.

From this application, he connects to the management system (FMS, Flight Management System) and takes control of the plane, direction: Copacabana in Brazil.
