The hacker has created Android-application that allows “hack” aircraft


No one will argue that modern smartphones can perform a variety of tasks, ranging from simple “napominalok” to the more complex, such as tracking our location. And do you think, is it possible to hack a smartphone, say, for example, the plane ? It is possible.

As much as it may sound scary, but Hugo Teso, a consultant on electronic security systems, a hacker and part-time commercial airline pilot states that created the Android-app that can allow anyone to “make the plane dance to his tune,” by breaking the control system .

Working version of the application «PlaneSploit» revealed at a conference Hack In The Box. Thanks to him, the hacker managed to intercept a broadcast service between the aircraft and air traffic and then through other communication device “to seize control of the aircraft”, or influence the actions of its pilot, reporting false information.

This app was created by the hacker only to demonstrate that such a thing is possible, and convey to the owners information on airlines that they are serious about the issue of security. By the way say that any aircraft as pilot and passenger were not injured. The system was tested only in an artificial electronic environment. And yes, to see and download it in the near Google Play Store just will not work.
