hack the drones

Hackers are able to seize control of consumer drones and make them fall from the sky


there aren’t clear rules about what manufacturers need to do to secure drones to prevent them from being tampered with by malicious hackers.

Police have owned signal jamming tools to interfere with consumer drones for years. After all, it was a regular consumer drone that a member of ISIS turned into a kamikaze to bomb Kurdish fighters.

My note: from jamming devices, to raptors (birds) to hacking the apps – #BumpyRoad for drones

    Build Your Own Wi-Fi Drone Disabler With a Raspberry Pi
    Patrick Allan
    The device concept, from Brent Chapman at Make, uses a Raspberry Pi, a touchscreen, and a couple of simple Bash scripts that execute some basic network commands. When you tap the touchscreen, the Raspberry Pi finds the drone’s unsecured Wi-Fi access point (used by the pilot to control the drone via smartphone or tablet), telnets to the drone’s default gateway address, and shuts down the system from the inside without the pilot knowing. Chapman’s guide also includes steps on how to build a Wi-Fi signal booster out of a large can so you have a much longer range for your drone disabler.
