File this one under asymmetric warfare: Those predator drones that the American government uses to slaughter women and children can be hacked for $26.
But it’s just $25.95 to buy a piece of off the shelf software, like Skygrabber, that will allow you to see what the drones are seeing. Apparently, the drones have less security than my neighbour’s wifi signal.
Although Iraqi freedom fighters have not yet managed to turn the drones against their masters, they have been eavesdropping. Here’s hoping that, in the new year, we see them turn these little beasties around. Return to sender.
