Homeland Security team remotely hacked a Boeing 757

“During a keynote on Nov. 8 at the 2017 CyberSat Summit, a DHS official admitted that he and his team of experts remotely hacked into a Boeing 757.

This hack was not conducted in a laboratory, but on a 757 parked at the airport in Atlantic City, New Jersey. And the actual hack occurred over a year ago; we are only now hearing about it thanks to a keynote delivered by Robert Hickey, aviation program manager within the Cyber Security Division of the DHS Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate.

‘We got the airplane on Sept. 19, 2016. Two days later, I was successful in accomplishing a remote, non-cooperative, penetration,’ Hickey said. “
