Scary - if true

It all depends on the code and how it's networked.

Yes, it does, and it is very easy (code-wise) to make broadcaster immune from tampering.

Are you implying that code can never be vulnerable? That's a dangerous statement to make, considering all the vulnerabilities that exist in the world. Zero days etc. A Diffie-Hallman vulnerability was released just days ago.

Yes, software can always be vulnerable to its own programming bugs but this is not a type of vulnerability we have been discussing here.

 

If you have an embedded software that is totally 'closed in' and by definition/design can't be logged into - such software can be easily made immune to outside hackers. For example try hacking software in car/aircraft Electronic Control Unit that governs engine operation. Flight control stuff, whether on a Boeing or in a Garmin G1000 are of embedded type.

Whether the code is vulnerable or not is irrelevant in this case. This individual said he accessed a system that shares absolutely no interface, whether hard wire or network, with any of the planes flight critical systems. Except for electrical power, possibly.

This individual said

What this individual said and what he actually did I am afraid are two completely different things.  :rolleyes:

Does it make any difference that he also molested the box underneath his seat? This wasn't any sort of wifi hack, but a physical one against the systems within the cabin which are somehow related to the flight systems.

What the hell does "flying sideways" mean?? :huh:

That is likely the media's term for crabbing...

 

...although anyone who actually has at least two functional neurons would know that the most likely effect of a thrust differential would be a tendency to yaw a bit at most, and would most certainly be noticed by the pilots.
