So these drones will be in america sky or already have, probably ladder. Although, i do believe that the video of the drone is fake IMHO, the one in Chicago. I believe that it also may be real. But I am giving more towards fake....


Anyways, I was wondering if nerdy kids could possibly hack a drone and start controlling it like microsoft flight simulator. The question is intriguing to me. very much so. If anon is already this powerful, think about them 5, ten years from now.

Oh that would be so awesome! We live in a zoo now basically. These people think they own us.

Yes, they'll be able to hack the drones. Drones are waste of time and money.

I'd like to see all 30,000 get hacked at once. Take them out and do a synchronized air show before crashing them into each other. Would be some expensive fireworks.

Aha,capture them and reset the coordinates along with bunker busting capabilities... now that would be an accomplishment.

I am not sure anon could hack netflix.

If they are so powerful they could really have the balance of power if they chose to......

Just buy your own and control it with your ipad.

The Iranians actually did this. Apparently the weak point is the GPS system, although I also read somewhere else that the operating system for the drone was hacked in other ways too, and the US military had to change the operating system afterwards to make it more difficult.

Try not to hit any innocent aircraft, okay ?

I also remember something a few years back about the Sony Playstations being somehow used to jack things remotely. Does anyone remember that? I'm not a techie, so I'm not the best judge of what's plausible.

Iran also photo-shops failed weapons tests, parades welded tubes of 55 gal barrels as "new" missile systems and have publicly acknowledged the capture of suspected Israeli spy squirrels (truthfully)

If you choose to believe Iran spoofed the lost RQ-170's GPS it is your prerogative (even they don't claim to have "hacked" the data-link)

GPS spoofing has been identified as a potential threat for twenty years, if a UAV receives conflicting GPS data the navigation defaults to internalised inertial navigation, disregards the GPS information and continues on its mission. In the event the data link is lost it flies itself home.

The RQ-170 lost in Iraq had a malfunction, possibly powerplant failure, and crashed. Sometimes things break and airplanes crash, especially airplanes built on new technologies.

Certainly an intelligence coup for Iran but not something they could have had a hand in (within the realms of statistical probability)


Four months after capturing a crashed U.S. stealth drone near the Iran-Afghanistan border, Tehran claims it has hacked into the ‘bot’s classified mission-control system. If true, it could mean Iran is making good on its vow to reverse-engineer the stealthy, Lockheed Martin-built RQ-170 Sentinel spy drone and produce homemade copies.

But that’s not likely. “Based on my experience,” Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, a former CIA director, told reporters, “I would seriously question their ability to do what they say they’ve done.” A Pentagon drone program manager was far more blunt. Speaking to Danger Room on condition of anonymity, the program manager said Iran’s claim “sounds like complete bull#.”

No one wants to talk on the record about the super-secret Sentinel. The Air Force declined Danger Room’s requests for comment. So did Lockheed Martin. But they may not need to say anything. Iran’s public comments about the RQ-170 do a pretty good job of debunking themselves.
Did Iran Hack a Captured U.S. Stealth Drone?

I do not think trading one source of power and tyranny , for another, is what we need......

Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely........

Be careful what you wish for.........

I think the only reasons the Iranians got ahold of this thing was intentional......

Be nice to test how far you can get a drone into enemy airspace before something happens.....

And also showed them what kind of technology the iranians are capable of......

Now we know what they can and cant do........

There wont be a repeat

Trojan Horse anyone?

I agree that it is very possible there is much more to this incident. I have heard the Trojan Horse theory elsewhere , the idea is certainly plausible.

As a footnote, contrary to the popular belief that the RQ-170 is an bleeding edge technology along the lines of an autonomous B-2, the RQ-170 was specifically designed as an expendable, semi stealthy tactical system with the goal that no sensitive technology be used so that a loss with the wreckage being recovered by an adversary would not compromise any sensitive technologies.

There is also the rumour that the captured RQ-170 shown in the Iranian press photos looks odd to a couple with serious credentials. I'll leave it at that.

First, this is the most ignorant thing I've ever read.

You must understand, anonymous is not this all powerful hacker "group" people think. Compared to government sponsored hackers, they are nothing. Stuxnet, Duqu.

You can't "Hack" a drone, one of the most misconceptions people throw around in this board and shows how little they know. Here, read RanulfC's post to get a better understanding what is involved.

Me too, to the tune of Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture, obviously...

what if other countries learn how to hack the drones and attack us with them ?

Probably not going to happen, but it is a risk that could happen.

I hope the Military knows what they are doing with these.

You were right about the RQ-170, it has crude stealth compared to other designs. It wasn't a matter of if, but a matter of when a RQ-170 was going to get lost.

I can see you are possibly one of the only people that actually understand, I think you might find this article interesting.

If I'm not mistaken the design is from the 90's. Hardly cutting edge indeed.

that will bee so stupid to hack the drones... think if some anonkid hacking the drone and just turn off the machine and then the machine will fall down and maybe kill a civilian, if people first starting to hack drones around the world will only be more bad becouse people beeing control freak,
