Boeing Dreamliner…a Hackliner?

Sunday, January 6th, 2008

Oh man, this better be fixed before the airliner is used in commercial flights…and let’s just hope they don’t run any Microsoft Windows! 😉

Wired: "Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner passenger jet may have a serious security
vulnerability in its onboard computer networks that could allow
passengers to access the plane’s control systems, according to the U.S.
Federal Aviation Administration.

The computer network in the Dreamliner’s passenger compartment,
designed to give passengers in-flight internet access, is connected to
the plane’s control, navigation and communication systems, an FAA
report reveals."
