People are having serious doubts about the security researcher who allegedly hacked a plane
Security researcher Chris Roberts.
Security researcher Chris Roberts made headlines after an FBI report alleged he had hacked a plane during flight and taken over the controls — but now serious doubts are growing over the entire affair.
In an interview with a special agent earlier this year about potential vulnerabilities in in-flight software, Roberts apparently said he could hack a plane using the passenger entertainment system. These comments then came to light after Roberts was barred from United Airlines flights in a high-profile incident after tweeting about potential vulnerabilities.
A search warrant was issued for the researcher's devices as part of an FBI investigation — and the comments were included in the warrant, which was made public.
Here are the relevant parts of the warrant (emphasis ours):
A special Agent with the FBI interviewed Chris Roberts on February 13, 2015 and March 5, 2015 to obtain information about vulnerabilities with In Flight Entertainment (IFE) systems on airplanes. Chris Roberts advice that he had identified vulnerabilities with IFE systems of Boeing 737-800, 737-900, and Airbus A-320 aircraft. Chris Roberts furnished the information because he would like the vulnerabilities to be fixed.
