SkyGrabber Lets Iraqi Militants Hack U.S. Drone's Video

drone The U.S. has been using Predator drones, or unmanned jets,  to carry out attacks and surveillance missions in Iraq, but sources say that Iraqi militants have been using these video feeds to their own advantage. With a program called SkyGrabber, that can be bought online for around $26, Iraqi militants were able to intercept the live video feeds that the Predator jets were capturing. This type of intel allowed the Iraqis to basically anticipate and avoid any U.S. military action.

The security vulnerability of the video feeds exhibits how much work the military needs to do to secure and encrypt their network.
