In 2015, the FBI arrested Chris Roberts, who admitted that he had intruded at least 20 commercial aircraft during the flight. Chris Roberts said he broke into the aircraft's system via WiFi in-flight entertainment and could even interact with the engine control system.
United said it was worried, and then pulled him into the "black list."
The following message may make the United speech uncomfortable to say:US Department of Homeland Security researchers remotely attacked a Boeing 757 at Atlantic City, New Jersey airport.
United's "fear" has come true. Although the Boeing 757 has been discontinued for 12 years, this long-range twin-passenger aircraft is still very popular among the fleet of many American carriers.American Airlines, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines, the three major airlines still use a large number of 757 aircraft to run flights.
This hacker attack actually took place in September 2016 as part of a "controlled experiment." What is most special about this time is that the aircraft that participated in the test was actually purchased by the Department of Homeland Security. The pilot may have to vomit blood because he did not know that the research team is trying to "break" the aircraft.
However, researchers at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said they did not physically interface with the aircraft and interact with any system on board, but rather remotely through "radio frequency communications", and in just two days, the Department of Homeland Security team To complete the crack and implementation.
How did such confidential information come out? Of course, is what my people say.
Robert Hickey, aviation program manager for cyber security at DHS Science and Technology (S & T) Bureau, delivered a keynote address at the CyberSat Summit 2017 last Wednesday. Hickey told the audience that details of the break remain confidential, but they use "typical items that can pass the safety."
Aviation experts said they knew of exploits that Hickey and the DHS team were using, but - seven experienced airline pilots did not even know about the issue, despite reading the March 2017 aeronautical briefing.
It seems that aviation experts conducted a survey.
"All seven people are scared that their jaws will fall." This article was seen in an article posted by foreign media and produced a small question:What is the relationship between the seven people and the NHS-owned aircraft?
Oh, yes. President Donald Trump, who just came to China to visit China, may have to send an angry tweet:His private jet is the Boeing 757, which is also used by the vice president.
You know, at the end of 2016, Trump did one thing:Negotiating personally with Boeing for Air Force One's price promises to block a future order if necessary and to continue using the existing aircraft as a presidential plane.
