British Air Force Concerned about the Threat of Cyberattacks on Airplanes

The UK hires cyber experts to test military equipment.

Currently, the command of the Royal Air Force of Great Britain is concerned about the use of new systems that allow penetration into the combat system of fighters, and therefore intends to attract the best cyber specialists in order to conduct appropriate tests.

Earlier in the media there was evidence that a number of countries are developing special electronic systems that allow hacking of military equipment, in particular, we are talking about modern fighters, which in fact means that a potential enemy can intercept control of a combat aircraft.

From the point of view of cyber experts, such a possibility does exist, but there are no effective ways to protect against such attacks.
