SkyGrabber: Putting UAVs to Use for the Insurgents

Lots is being made of the incredible story of how the Department of Defense's sophisticated drones are susceptable to having their video feeds intercepted by a $26.00 computer software program available online (just Google "skygrabber" to find out more).  Here are some articles discussing the dilemna:

"SkyGrabber: Is hacking military drones too easy?", The Christian Science Monitor, December 17, 2009.

"SkyGrabber: Powerful Software in the Wrong Hands", Now Public, December 17, 2009.
