The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a security advisory for small planes warning of a hacking exploit if someone physically accesses the aircraft.
The Rapid7 cybersecurity company learned an attacker could potentially disrupt electronic messages routed across an aircraft's network, and interfere with the plane's systems, by affixing a small gadget to its wiring.
The DHS recommended plane owners limit unauthorized access until the vulnerability is corrected.
The report also urged manufacturers to review how they deploy open electronics systems known as "the CAN bus," to restrict an attacker's ability to execute such a hack.
