Maldrone: Malware which hijacks your personal drone

Quote:
Malware is no longer limited to PCs, mobile devices, corporate networks and Internet of Things (IoT) gadgets -- your drones are now also vulnerable to hijacking.

The use of drones, also known as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), has expanded into the commercial consumer sector within the past few years. Now relatively cheap to produce, tiny, personal UAVs can be purchased and used for a variety of purposes -- from advanced photography to capturing sports and spying upon Apple construction sites.

Drone maker to add no-fly firmware to prevent future White House buzzing

Quote:
In the wake of a National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency employee’s late-night drunken mischief with a DJi Phantom 2 consumer quadrocopter drone over White House airspace, President Barack Obama called for new laws to govern the use of unmanned aerial vehicles. Meanwhile, the company that manufactured the drone used in the ill-fated flight has announced that it will issue a mandatory upgrade to the firmware for its Phantom 2 line of products to make sure that customers comply with the FAA’s no-fly zone around DC.

Flying—and crashing—a $1,300 quadcopter drone

Stabilized GPS drone is amazing. Also, I crashed one into a tree and destroyed it.

In a press release issued this morning, DJI announced that the firmware update “will help users comply with the FAA’s Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) 0/8326, which restricts unmanned flight around the Washington, DC metropolitan area.The updated firmware (V3.10) will be released in the coming days and adds a No-Fly Zone centered on downtown Washington, DC and extends for a 25 kilometer (15.5 mile) radius in all directions. Phantom pilots in this area will not be able to take off from or fly into this airspace.”

MS thinks that one of my PCs is running W7 that's not genuine. It is genuine - at least I bought it from Amazon and paid £141 for it so that - to me - means it's genuine. It may not be but neither Amazon nor MS will take any responsibility for it not being genuine so I've given up with them both. I...
