Ruben Santamarta, a security researcher in the company IOActive claims that he is capable of hacking electronic equipment of an aircraft by accessing it through the entertainment system. The vulnerable systems include plane’s satellite communication and navigation. Manufacturers of the affected systems claim that Santamarta has hacked them only in the ideal labs condition and that successful hacking requires direct access to those systems that is restricted only to the authorized personnel.
