Drone Hacking 101
A team at the University of Texas at Austin claims to have hacked into and taken control of a non-military drone using less than $1,000 in parts, highlighting concerns over domestic drone use. Drones operated by the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies are already flying over the U.S.. Smaller groups like Universities and branches of law enforcement have sought approval from the FAA to operate unmanned aerial vehicles of their own. The FAA is working on regulations for such operations and the researchers' claim suggests that unencrypted GPS signals could put drone hijacking within the reach of anyone with $1,000 and the requisite intellectual resources. Recent history suggests that vulnerability may not be limited to domestic drones.
