GNSS spoofing will attain virus status, warns expert

November 29, 2016By

As manufacturers convert machines and appliances into remotely controllable objects (the Internet of Things), the potential for spoofing expands, perhaps exponentially. Hackers could interfere with the data supplied to autonomous cars or tracks, remotely forcing them to crash. Although the dangers of GPS spoofing have been pointedly discussed in may technical papers and articles in GPS World since the early... read more
