Continuing with my series on air travel this week, I see this little snippet:
A security researcher has reportedly discovered a code leak in a Boeing 787 Dreamliner that would allow hackers access to the in-flight entertainment system and possibly systems like controls.
I just flew on a 787 last week for my return to Dallas. Yeah, this makes me feel SO good about flying, when some neckbeard asshole (or, for that matter, some recently-shaved Islamist asshole) could mess around with the airliners’ control system while in the air.
Somebody remind me why I hate the Internet Of Things so much… oh never mind, I just remembered.
“Alexa, go fuck yourself.”
“I’m sorry, Kim, I can’t do that.”
