The Wireless Aerial Surveillance Platform
Two creative security experts -- Mike Tassey and Rich Perkins -- designed and built this unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) in their garage using off-the-shelf electronics, with the intention of proving that a drone could be used to launch a cyber-attack.
With only an Internet connection, a hacker sitting on a beach anywhere in the world could use this UAV to intercept cell phone conversations, steal financial information, or access secret government documents. This prototype was a success and the race is now on to develop the next generation of cyber drones.
