    The best way to start getting a handle on hackers is to give them the death penalty , or 20 to life , when they endanger lives with a hack . Public hangings worked .

    I would hack the entertainment systems to force people to watch newsmax TV or something. Haha!

    On a more serious note, we must consider anything that has or is connected to a network of some kind to be explicitly vulnerable, and all other electronics potentially vulnerable.

    Tolik, The death penalty? The Boston Bomber received the death penalty and he probably will never be put to death. If he committed his crime in Texas about 10 years from now they would kill him. This country absolutely sucks when it comes to efforcing punishment on the worst case criminals.

    The real question is now that the airlines know it can be done, what are they going to do about it?

    Probably confiscate laptops ………………..remember , we dont fix things , we just make thing more miserable for the public . After 9/11 it would have been a simple matter for manufacturers to isolate the cockpit from the rest of the aircraft , complete with an outside only entrance , and its own restroom ………..biggest problem solved .

    Tolik: Your common sense would just confuse them. Remember this is the same group that spent millions to develop a pen that could write in zero gravity. Russian solution: Use a pencil.

    Watching the airline industry destroy themselves is amazing. Won’t seize laptops, because business travelers are their bread and butter. If your not a business traveler, your just a seat filler that can be squeezed for as much cash as possible. Customer service is nonexistent.
