Hacking into an aircraft's thrust control systems mid-flight

Recommended Posts

Not to confused with the Chris Roberts we know, this Chris Roberts is a security researcher and has spent the last 5 years on the subject of improving airline security. For a number of months, this guy was able to hack into the aircraft's in-flight entertainment system and roughly 2 months ago he allegedly managed to hijack the aircraft's thrust control system, which in turn gave him access to change the aircraft's altitude and some degree of lateral control. Details of his research are currently compressed for security reasons and is now being reviewed by authorities.
