The great Boeing Dreamliner false-positive hack of 2019

There was a presentation at the Black Hat security conference on how the Dreamliner could be hacked.

The press jumped on it and made it seem like it was an imminent threat.

My take on it is that there is no risk involved and the researchers were missing a number if key points.

Interesting news item, but out of historical scope for this forum. Official Travel Technology forum agenda:

"Business travel includes cell phones, computers and more. Does that mean just digital cameras are allowed on regular travel? What works where, when and why not."

Thanks

Got it....thanks.

When I saw computers, I thought something related to hacking was in scope.
