+ - Satellite Hacking: A Guide for the Perplexed->

Submitted by The Walking Dude
The Walking Dude (905913) writes "Culture Mandala has posted a lengthy introduction to the topic of satellite hacking that includes lists of known incidents. Colorful examples include hackers using satellites to warn of impending zombie attacks and flipping satellites over [POW] so the solar panels face the earth and the imager gets fried by the sun. While there is no mention of WARMACHINEROX being used as a password, it does appear that dumpster diving outside of NASA facilities can turn up discarded hard drives that contain useful information. The use of drones, internet connectivity, and the reasons for continued vulnerability in relation to satellites are also discussed."
