Have you ever thought that one day geeks might take over the world? Or maybe they make such devices like Drones or Robots which are capable of hacking almost any device!? Well this is a possibility and some of these have recently even been tested and proved.
Drone Can easily Infiltrate Your Network by Hovering Outside the Building
|How a Drone Can easily Infiltrate Your Network by Hovering Outside the Building|
There’s a researchers group from Singapore named as iTrust, working at University of Technology and Design, Singapore. They have developed two mobile applications which have been equipped with a drone and then that drone is capable to Infiltrate Your Network by Hovering outside the Building. Isn’t dangerous? Or maybe smart.
This drone is capable of intercepting wireless printer transmissions inside a building and can get all confidential files from it. This drone with a smart phone consisting two certain apps, can simply access your network through the drone and heck your printer and data.
Coming to that Drone, it contains a smart phone with certain apps in it. Those apps are:
- Cybersecurity Patrol
- Yet to be Named
The Cybersecurity Patrol app can detect an open Wi-Fi Printer and then after detecting it, automatically notifies to IT department.
Another app, after detecting the open Wi-Fi Printer, let’s the smart phone establish a fake access poing and gets all the documents in it rather than actual printer to which the original printing command was given.
While this was actually performed or say “Hacked”, they used DJI Drone and a Samsung smart phone. Through that they installed Debian Linux operating system And those 2 custom apps were written in Python through which they were able to hack printer – HP6830 Wireless Printer.
Other than this, they also have been making several other very impressive machines.
They also have developed a Robotic-Vacuum-Cleaner. It can of course clean the area as a normal vacuum cleaner can do but also can scan for networks while cleaning. Simultaneously it can work out and do both tasks.
As this group said, they are mainly spreading awareness to corporate organizations that anything even simple machines can also get over your important files and hack anything through your office.
As we discussed about “Vacuum Cleaner” and “Drone” with certain special skills to hack/ scan networks – anything is quite possible. We need to be careful with any types of gadgets. They are capable to do much more than we can ever think about.
