Can a Drone Read Your Email?
Two creative security experts designed and built this unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in their garage using off-the-shelf electronics. They wanted to prove that a drone can be used to launch a cyberattack. With only an internet connection, a hacker sitting on a beach anywhere in the world could use a UAV to intercept cell phone conversations, steal financial information, or access secret government documents. This prototype was a success and the race is now on to develop the next generation of cyber drones.
