Boeing subsidiary Insitu would like to be able to deliver spyware via drone

2 years ago | 1712 Views


There are lots of ways that government spies can attack your computer, but a U.S. drone company is scheming to offer them one more. Boeing subsidiary Insitu would like to be able to deliver spyware via drone.

The leaked internal emails from the surveillance software company Hacking Team have revealed that the spyware company developed a robotic aircraft designed to attack computers and smartphone devices through Wi-Fi networks.

The plan is described in internal emails from the Italian company Hacking Team, which makes off-the-shelf software that can remotely infect a suspect’s computer or smartphone, accessing files and recording calls, chats, emails and more.

The mini-TNI, marketed at IDEX as "Galileo", drew the attention of a representative from Insitu, a subsidiary of Boeing that builds small unmanned aircraft systems including the ScanEagle and RQ-21A "Blackjack" UASs used by the US Navy. See more at: https://firstlook.org/theintercept/...
