The hack developed by Teso compromises two airplane communication systems. Apparently these systems are not well protected and can be used to hijack an airplane. This is pretty scary. The only thing that prevented this from happening so far is that you need to know a lot about airplanes and hacking to come up with this. Hugo Teso is a trained commercial pilot for 12 years and has been in IT for the last eleven years. Let's hope that there are no other hackers with a commercial pilot license out there.
The App developed by Teso only works within a virtual environment to protect real world plans.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
