New Threat: Arial Attack

The ability to access Wi-Fi from a commercial airline flight is a relatively new luxury. Laptops and other devices that project or receive any sort of signal had, for many years, been banned for use during airborne transportation. But with so many business executives traveling across the country from meeting to meeting, Wi-Fi on planes is a feature that has quickly been adopted for routine use, often being relied upon to complete projects and maintain communications. That could be changing soon, since new studies are revealing some scary vulnerabilities with inflight Wi-Fi. One researcher has highlighted some of the more dangerous holes in security, with the hopes of bringing enough attention to them to fix the problem, and keep this popular new feature in operation.
