WikiLeaks: Boeing Might be Planning to Hack Computers Via Drone

Previously, two “hackers” (they were actually intelligence agency security consultants) demoed a 14-pound drone under the label Project Vespid that showed the ability for anyone to build their own drone, invade any wireless network, Bluetooth, or GSM, and wiretap, steal data, corrupt the network, or even shut it down completely. This was supposed to be a warning of something new that the “bad guys” can get us with. Enter mega defense contractor Boeing – supposedly one of the “good guys” – who appear to have been exploring the exact same thing.

The corporate Washington Post offers up the details and even a few surprising admissions regarding the relationship between Boeing and surveillance tech company Hacking Team, but again spins it to imply that this is intended only to get those terrorists. My emphasis added.
