Pentagon: hackers can gain control of any aircraft

Hackers easily accessed the data of military aircraft.

The experiment conducted by the US military command showed that at the moment the country's defense system is very vulnerable to cyberattacks from any potential enemy. This is evidenced by the experiment, during which experts were asked to access data and aircraft systems, which was successfully carried out.

As part of the experiment, cyber specialists were able to gain access to the aircraft’s communication systems, make changes to the on-board computer, and even take control of the aircraft.

In fact, not only military aircraft remain unprotected, but civil aircraft, and any attack can lead to catastrophic consequences.
