Congress Demands $200 Million Antivirus Scan of Connected Weapons

“President Barack Obama is set to sign a defense bill ordering the Pentagon to probe every major weapon system for hacker entryways. Among many passages dedicated to cybersecurity in the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act is a section on evaluating cyber vulnerabilities in weaponry. 

The Defense Department must update lawmakers on progress during quarterly cyber operations briefings, according to the bill, which cleared the Senate on Tuesday. A full assessment of the military’s artillery systems is due by the end of 2019.”
