Combine that with Cesaroni engines and some cardboard tubes and it'll be all-out combat!

The DoD wouldn't care so much if the Amazon thing wasn't a front to get us to accept drones flying over American cities.

"SkyJack does have its limitations, however, since it can only select targets within a pre-defined range of MAC addresses on an unsecured network. For now, the software can only take control of other Parrot drones, because they all use a block of MAC addresses owned by the manufacturer and have no encryption or authentication in place."

Wow people are worried because he hacked his own drone that has no encription and runs on an unsecured network....  Jesus do you think people will use WEP to secure the wifi network of the drones and not encrypte the data?

Move along people nothing to see here.

I imagine you're going to tell me that you don't have hours to hack a drone  that is going to be flying in and out of your area in minutes, but that drone will likely be serving your area repeatedly through the day and over multiple days, you could easily accrue the time needed to crack the drone. Or you could just setup a system near to an Amazon drone launch site and then you would have considerably more time. Not to mention that this is code that is freely available to the average Joe. What would a talented cracker like the guy in the article work out that would take less time with more efficient results?

And you really think they will be using WPS on these drones?  I'm very doubtful on that, I could be wrong but I haven't been in a large business that had WPS enabled.  Of course I haven't been in all of them but most large companies have no use for WPS.

Disabling WPS is not always effective at stopping this kind of attack. And this was just an example at the general insecurity in WiFi devices especially considering that tool is nearly two years old and the guy in this article uses other tools that are known to be effective at the task such as aircrack-ng and I'm guessing Kamkar's SkyJack software which he developed for this task probably addresses issues which he probably wont go into detail about on a geek site.
