Security & Hacking: Remote Airplane Hacking

The article is based on a presentation by "Hugo Teso, a security consultant at consultancy firm N.runs in Germany, who has also had a commercial pilot license for the past 12 years..."

Teso has discovered a serious issue, and the firm he works with "N.runs has been in contact with the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA)."

Teso says EASA is aiding the effort to test this on real aircraft, instead of simulators and some real hardware.

The EASA should be applauded for this enlightened approach IMO, many companies or even industries, take a far less productive or even antagonistic approach to White Hat discovery of vulnerabilities.
