I have my pilot's license and have taken several college programs for aviation and air-traffic-control. This story reeks of deception and disinfo.
On Friday 6/8/2007 thousands of flights were seriously delayed and canceled including the flight of a family member of mine who is still stranded on
the east coast as I author this thread. This story is being hushed and spun for some reason. I am not sure why yet.
Rumor in the aviation community is already ringing that this computer attack was the work of hacker terrorists in an effort to cause millions in
financial loss and negatively influence the daily lives of normal US citizens. These are the two top goals of terrorists.
The systems of the FAA and ATC are so outdated that they are easily vulnerable to even amateur hackers. This weakness has been exploited and unless
the Govt. and FAA wake-up and start spending adequate amounts on ATC and upgrading technology, these attacks will occur again.
