Hacker Says He Can Break Into Airline Systems

(Boston, MA) -- A cyber security expert says he found a way to hack into satellite communications systems on passenger jets. If the claim is true, that could prompt an industry-wide review of aircraft security. Hacker Ruben Santamarta says he found "wide open" security weaknesses that could easily allow experienced hackers access to communications systems on major airliners. He'll detail his findings during this week's Black Hat hacking conference in Las Vegas.
