Default UPDATE: 'App' for smart phone can overtake in-flight control systems.

From a credible electronic engineering e-news letter I subscribe to, one more thing to worry about.
I don't know how available this is, but looks like time has come for the aviation industry to encrypt these crucial systems.

Smartphone used to hack into a plane cockpit
A security researcher was able to hack an aircraft's cockpit with an Android smartphone

After you board a plane and are safely buckled in your seat, the pilot reminds you and the other passengers with their noses tucked into their touchscreens to power off all electronic devices. If they interfere with the in-flight management system, there could be some serious disturbances. But still, there are the few testy travelers who ignore the pilot's requests, because, really, how much harm can a little smart phone do?

Apparently a lot, as was evidenced by a security researcher, who claimed that he could hack into an aircraft's cockpit with his Android mobile phone.

At the annual security conference, Hack In The Box, which took place in Amsterdam this year, security researcher, Hugo Teso, demonstrated that it's possible to take full control of aircraft flight systems and communications. All you need are two things: an Android smartphone and a specialized attack code.

Teso spent three years developing the attack code, which he named SIMON, and bought second-hand commercial flight system software and hardware off the Internet. By using the attack code, along with an Android app known as PlaneSploit, Teso found that he was able to take full control of flight systems as well as the pilot's displays. Even more shocking, the hacked aircraft could be controlled using a smartphone's accelerometer to vary its course and speed.

After discovering that the Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) system, which updates ground controllers on an aircraft's position, was completely unsecure, Teso found it could be used to eavesdrop on an aircraft's communications as well as interrupt broadcasts or feed in misinformation.

The Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System (ACARS), the communication relay between pilots and ground controllers, was also found vulnerable. By using a Samsung Galaxy handset, Teso demonstrated how to use ACARS to redirect an aircraft's navigation systems to different map coordinates.
He was able to insert code into a virtual aircraft's Flight Management System, and by passing the code between the aircraft's computer unit and the pilot's display, Teso was able to take total control of what the aircrew would see in the cockpit.

Although some of this is doubtful, as the pilot has the option to override the automatic systems, the software could be used to easily control other functions, such as deploying oxygen masks and lights.

According to Teso, the Federal Aviation Administration and the European Aviation Safety Administration have been working on fixing the issues.

Napolitano has determined restricting the sales of "Assault Smart Phones", and requiring background checks of all Americans who wish to purchase any smart phone's to be the number one priority in the fight on liberty... I mean terror.

Get your Samsung Galaxy III before they are banned.

(I hear if this won't pass she's going to go after the batteries)

Love the sarcasm AR. but not as far fetched as things go, almost daily, now days.

BTW I got a new phone last month, "HTC One-X-Plus" , amazing device, more functions than I'll ever be able to figure out.

I'm so screwed, my assault phone is not only black, but it has a fixed battery!

I have an evil Seidiogrip that serves no purpose for civilian use with another evil feature of a kickstand that allows a high rate of fire.

Ther'es a lot of things just like this ... I wish I didn't know.

Onstar is another good example. Pretty simple M2M system, couple of different radios in there (satellite, cellular, bluetooth). Start peeling back the layers of that onion... eventually you see they're all connected in one way or another. There's enough of the protocol out there that lets you send messages between the layers. Engine is all done through OBDII, GPS is regular old NMEA strings... bluetooth/cellular are all standard...

Default Update on aircraft control 'app'.

I sent the link to a buddy who is very computer and aircraft savvy.
He dug deeper, and found out that the so-called control was done in simulation, and further the FAA denys the reality.

My friends response:
This turns out this guy did this on a simulated stuff, not on real flight hardware. So it's creditability is suspect.

This was taken from the register , I'm a bit surprised that Electronic Products magazine would just copy the article like that.

This is the original register posting:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04...droid_handset/

and a follow up article

I was looking around a few months ago about how to remove my Onstar, but didn't come up with much. Most people just went on about why someone would want to do it, but me personally I don't like the fact that police can get the info from a service I pay for and use it against me to prove I was speeding, not wearing my seat belt, etc.

As an old electronics and RF tech myself (RF=Radio Frequency) somewhere in the vehicle there must be a module that communicates with ONSTAR.

ONSTAR operates over the major cell phone networks thru the little "blob" antenna or short "rubber ducky" antenna on the vehicle roof..

Obviously everything in the vehicle operates off the 12 Volt electrical system.
Now I don't own a vehicle with this feature, but it shouldn't be too difficult to 1. find the fuse that is associated with the Onstar module,and pull it.

2. Or, trace the 12V wire to the Onstar module, and wire in a remote switch to power up the module if you ever need it, and shut it off as desired.

Just sayin'

Back of car or truck. Trunk, if you have one.
Drivers side, usually.
Pull back trunk side cover, look for silver box.
Should say onstar on it somewhere.

Pull power, usually biggest connector, usually black, usually only connector with wires visible.

The cellphone antenna is inside the silver box.
The GPS antenna is the funny looking disk, with a 2 inch square antenna sticking out of it, on top of your car.

If you just disconnect the antenna, data will still be sent but without meaningful GPS data. But, speed will still go out. If you disconnect the wrong cable then it will just turn off your display, but still work.
