U.S. Air Traffic Control Computers Hacked?

Sunday, May 10, 2009 Posted by Shattered Paradigm

What would you say if I told you that U.S. air traffic control computers have been hacked several times in the past few years?

You would probably say that I was crazy.

But I am not saying it.

A government report is.

According to a new government audit, hackers broke into U.S. air traffic control computers on several occasions over the past several years.

Wow, that is frightening?

So is this the future of flight?

Having to worry if your flight plan will be hacked and you will end up flying into a mountain?

Technology does wonderful things with us, but it also brings new problems.

Hopefully hackers will never be able to do anything truly dangerous to our air traffic control systems, but it is hard to feel as confident in our air traffic control security after reading this.
