Hi all. I'm sure you, like me, are busy with finals (and soon the holidays). I ran into this story today and thought it was interesting. It discusses that insurgents are managing to hack into drone video feeds. I enjoyed this quote in particular:

"The potential drone vulnerability lies in an unencrypted downlink between the unmanned craft and ground control. The U.S. government has known about the flaw since the U.S. campaign in Bosnia in the 1990s, current and former officials said. But the Pentagon assumed local adversaries wouldn't know how to exploit it, the officials said."
