Hackers Taking It To the Next Level

By reversing the encryption between the controller and drone, you'll be able to hack a drone just like Nils Rodday. Local civillion explains that he is able to hack a $35,000 police drone! It may seem easy but it takes some practice with using encryption codes and configuring.


Be careful while swiping your credit card! These tiny monsters who are commonly referred to as "credit card skimmers" will take your money! How it works is as you swipe your card your thinking,"I have to pay for my gas." No, your actually sending your credit card data and money to the benefactor. Lately, over 8,500 credit card skimmers have been found in about 1,000 gas stations.


Another story that is related to that is the Target breach from 2013. If you didn't know, Target settled for a 39 million settlement from 70 million customers. If your confused, Target was attacked by hackers and all of their customers' credit card information were leaked. Around that time Mastercard filed a 19 million lawsuit against Target. But Target rejected that settlement. Another lawsuit that was against Target was Visa and Target settled with 67 million. The last settlement against Target was the federal class action by customers for 10 million.

Section 2B

Are hackers helping or hacking?

There has been news about the San Bernardino shooter, Syed Rizwan Farook, a lot lately. We were told that the FBI paid 1.7 million to hack into Syed's iPhone. The FBI already contacted Apple but, Apple wasn't going to help since that would mean they would be unlocking codes for almost every single Apple user. Since Apple wasn't willing to help the FBI took Apple to court and even had the judge to tell them too. But, Apple explained what would be happening if they did. After they denied to helping the FBI they were locked in a legal public battle for 43 days. Now since the FBI managed to hack their way into the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone, Apple wants to know how they did it. The FBI were not going to tell them how so, Apple is, as of now, still trying to figure it out.
