NowThen and Fred T your comments I find quite a scary prospect. Are we basically talking about the deliberate infiltration of the airports communication system? As the likelihood of a Trojan entering by chance is tantamount to impossible?
The central computer at Spanair, in which were recorded the aircraft failures was infected with malicious software when the crash of Flight JK 5022 happened, two years ago today. The computer, located at the headquarters of the airline in Palma de Mallorca, emits an alarm on the monitor when it registers three similar technical problems in the same plane. The plane that crashed at Barajas today two years ago killed 154 of its 172 occupants, accumulating three incidents, which were not registered in time on the computer.
The deficiency of that computer is joined also by the fact that Spanair took about 24 hours to register in the computer failures of its planes, according to admissions from two mechanics from the airline to the judge. This is not a trivial matter, and the flight JK 5022 Madrid Barajas would not have taken off if its information on the computer had been updated. It would have triggered the alarm, since the spacecraft spotted two failures the day before the accident, August 19 and a third on the 20, the latter being responsible by the return from the runway, when the commander detected that a tube had overheated without justification. The mechanics are required to notify each failure to Spanair Palma immediately after detecting it. In this case, when employees tried to open the computer to write these three incidents they realized that the monitor was useless by the invasion of Trojans. By then, the plane had already crashed.
So you make virus/Trojans with the intent to harm other computers on purpose? Or Are you working on coding to help with program security holes for companies?
well anyways i dont believe for a second about the "trojan that crashed a plane"
You mention as well that Trojans must be piloted by an operator. Does this mean that if a Trojan was indeed the cause or partial cause of this air crash, that someone somewhere was controlling this virus during the planes fatal flight?
