It sounds like the hacking you are talking about is actually taking over control and hijacking the satellite.
It is much easier to monitor the satellites output, decipher it, and then you have the same information. Then you know exactly what they know. And if
they were spying on you, you would also know what they haven't learned yet. Find the source of your leaks and then send out disinformation. Whenever
they discover it is disinformation, you have effectively 'destroyed' the satellites usefulness.
Satellite transponders have been hacked for years. It is much harder to hack the satellite control channel since that frequency and mode is never
publicized. And the back link control channel is never the same as the up link channel. You would have to transmit on 1,000 of frequencies, using
several different modes, guessing at passwords, operating language, programming language, etc...
