The threat of cyber terrorism poses a major risk to aircrafts' systems every time they enter an airport, a senior Boeing executive has said.
Boeing was the focus of a cyber security scare in 2008 when an analyst claimed the firms flagship 787 Dreamliner passenger jet had a serious weakness in its on-board computer networks which could allow passengers to take control of the aircraft.
A report by US authorities found that a network in the cabin designed to give passengers Internet access could be used to access the aircrafts control, navigation and communication systems. Boeing claimed the problem had been fixed before the official report was issued.
The scenario from the film Die Hard 2, where an aircrafts system is tricked into thinking it is flying 200 metres higher than it really is, causing it to crash land, is no longer merely a fictional scenario, the IATA warned at the time.

What happens when everything is connected to the U.S. neural network and the NWO command system and SkyNet becomes self-aware. Talk about life imitating art.
Ron Brown found out about ILS spoofing, too —old school.
(Before being shot in the top of his head)
We will never win on defense. Any nation proven to provide "aid and comfort" needs to pay a price...a very costly price.
There’s a theory that the neural network is already self-aware. A purely logical digital “animal” that is aware of nearly everything on this planet through all the compiled data, live sensors and inputs by billions of humans. Unintentional artificial intelligence.
It may already see humans as irrational and a threat to its own survival. Just waiting for the peasants to give it more power and arm it. Robots are how this animal will interact with the world...
I’d say having a portable pilot’s two-way radio near a major airport is a bigger threat. Any authentication of tower comms?
