WASP drone: the next chapter in cyber-terrorism

WASP drone: the next chapter in cyber-terrorism || “DIY Spy Drone Sniffs Wi-Fi, Intercepts Phone Calls” http://ow.ly/5VBfX

Like all things technological in nature, the first prototypes are large and often unwieldy so it is no surprise that the Wireless Aerial Surveillance Platform (WASP) drone is nearly six feet in length although it cost a mere $6,000 to build.  It can sniff and intercept Wi-Fi and mobile phone signals while simultaneously launching denial of service attacks.  I will give it less than 24 months before the same capabilities can be found in a delivery mechanism one-fifth the size with the ability to remain aloft for over three hours.  Whether it would be used for true cyber-terrorism or garden variety industrial espionage, this heralds a new era of hacking.
