Reuters reports hacking of ground computer system at Warsaw Airport in Poland. The system was used by Airline LOT to issue flight plans. It is also reported by Reuters that it took 5 hours to rectify the system during which 10 flights were cancelled and many more delayed.
This brings forth the serious issue that Airlines need to take care of in the Cyber Security area. Just last month FBI revealed that an hacker named Chris Roberts has claimed to have hacked into Airline’s engine control and also music system during 2011 to 2014.
