Hijacking Drones in Mid-Flight with New Tiny Device

hijacking drones

A new tiny gadget has recently emerged online, allowing you to hijack almost any drone in the air. Jonathon Andersson, a security researcher for Trend Micro, has designed and developed this small device, which has the ability to hijack a variety of popular drones, even if they are in mid-flight. With this tiny device, you can lock out the owner of your targeted drone and take full control over it.

Andersson was able to provide the audience of this year’s PacSec Security conference in Tokyo, a small demonstration of what this little device can do.

Drones are not the only thing vulnerable to this little device. In fact, this gadget is capable of hijacking a wide range of other radio-controlled devices, including RC helicopters, RC boats, and other RC-based devices running off wireless transmission control protocol, DSMx.

DSMx is a specific protocol that properly facilitates the communications between the radio controller and radio receiver.

This isn’t the first type of gadget that provides assistance with the hijacking of drones. In a previous article, I wrote about a device that jams the signal of drones in mid-flight, by blocking the radio signals. However, the jamming devices will not provide you with any means of control, they just simply block the signals.

Icarus provides you with control over your targeted drone.

This box works by exploiting the DSMx protocols, ultimately providing you with full control over the drone; allowing you to steer, accelerate, decelerate and even crash it.

Icarus Box will grab the key of your targeted drone, and allow you to send malicious packets of data that will restrict the original owner’s commands to the drone. In essence, the box will only allow the drone to take commands from the hacker.

The manufacturers are already working on releasing the patches needed for updating their hardware. The manufacturers are already taking security measures from the industry-wide encryption protocol for their future drones.

Icarus Box is not being sold at this time, however, this type of gadget will benefit local and federal law officials, as well as individuals with worrisome overhead drone activity, in the future.

  1. computation and mind problem at the same time… unique self path ideas…
    why no one can build their own processors at home, for example…
    research material free processors, cheap construction processors…

    i idealized processors of like a cube lets say 64 by 64 cores in a cube with routers and networks and cooling in the same object. can work. processors when are too many you dont need memory, the processor can repeat the message as memory.
    light computer with blurred light and joined light, i think it can work, there is a problem with times and synchronizing light beams. can use leds or lasers. leds is easy lasers are hard. and mirrors.
    magnetism computers can probably also be made and are cheap and work fast. i think magnetic coils can be used.

    supercomputers are being used to control people at each moment. more and more. look for how to cleanse energy and consciousness and reverse mind patterns induction… like the mind goes in one direction, is it easier to go forward or backward, i believe it is backward, it can be made by understanding natures and patterns of applied energies and natures around the beings. resolving energy is a term used by psychics to treat heal energy. that’s why energy nature purity is important and freedom too for that.

    there is a thing that it is being applied by the chemtrails which is blocking the senses and instincts because of emanation of energies from nature and chemical and emotion comunication. so that’s why in america people are following a pattern of colors and fashion. practice sports you eat healthy you will see that disappearing. its like the pineal gland sensing a metal version layer of reality, imagine everyday. removing those particles can be done through magnetism and water rain itself. it has to be extracted from air and land actually.

    so they follow orders, imagine everybody, and only follow what voices and life colors patterns induces them to. they are treating people like bugs. and to not follow instinct and harmony and nature and emotion and instead being rigid to life and money and follow colors and fashion becasue it has colors and is where all the fun seems to be. it’s a layer of a syntetic iron emanation of emotion from nature and chemistry comunication between cells and odours and sensing. they are infecting the world with a matrix idea…
    you need to switch between system and nature and self in the matrix for thyhacker and nature and the system… you will get there… once there… red pill… you can’t go back to sleep again.

    if people don’t have feelings for nature and instinct and communicate with all other life forms and water what they will do follow when life seems more bright light colorful smelly and prosperous.

    weather modification is for the same purpose. beware of distroying the natural habitat which no one can find in no planet for probably billions of light years. just because so if you can’t common sense with nature emotions and instinct and interspecies communication and astrobiology, you will not be able to distinguish between what is right from what is wrong and defy the system… and that only means, they started close, it’s close and thats the only plan they have to cheat on people…

    and the foundation of the illuminati is related with the agenda 21, the millenia 2000’s consumerism futurism problem.
