Evidently, all it takes is about $1K worth of computing equipment and some technical know-how to hijack a military drone. The Department of Homeland security asked a group of Texas students to take a run at controlling the drone and they were able to spoof the drone’s GPS signal pretty easily. Interesting, but it really begs the question: isn’t this something the Air Force should have tested before we started flying them over foreign countries? Because, you know, Iran has college students with computers, too.” from WhatsNewNow@eletters.whatsnewnow.com
