Boeing 787 hit by security fears


news.bbc.co.uk

Boeing has been ordered to ensure passengers on its new 787 Dreamliner jet cannot hack into the flight system and take control of the plane.
The ruling has come from America's Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), which is concerned that the plane's computer system may be vulnerable.

Boeing said it was in constant dialogue with the FAA to resolve the issue.

The US giant will start to deliver the mid-sized planes from November. British Airways has ordered 24 Dreamliners.

I did ponder this for a few minets. I don't really think hacking into systems is something that could readily be done. Taking control of a plane by hacking might make a good story for a movie but that would be about all. Near as I can see it.
