According to CBC News, Planes can be hacked via inflight WiFi.
Last month, I bought a subscription to GoGo, and as much as I didn’t like the price, I sure do like the convenience. My one gripe, aside from price, is that sometimes the connection is spotty and cuts out when you need it most. That said, just to even have this capability on planes is a Godsend, so I’ll take what I can get.
According to this article, plans can be hacked via inflight WiFi to control all sorts of things, including, but not limited to accessing your personal information, bank account data, credit card information and more. This is scary, since just the other day I did order something online from 30,000 feet up in the air. Read the article and let me know what you think.
Do you use inflight WiFi? If so, do you have any concerns over security?
