Mexican Drug Traffickers Are Hacking Border Patrol Drones to Trick Agents

By Steve Neavling

Drug traffickers are hacking Border Patrol drones along the U.S.-Mexico border to confuse federal investigators, Hackread.com reports. 

Drones used by law enforcement are not as expensive and hack-proof like the ones flown by the U.S. military.

As Hackread.com explains it, “standard drone modules need to be deleted including the one that ensures the security of the drone in the case of GPS spoofing.”

What happens is, attackers send fake GPS data to receivers on the drone, making it difficult to track would-be traffickers.

Due to fake coordinates, federal agents are tricked into believing the drone is over one area when in fact it’s over an entirely different area.
