So, it is very good news for hackers who want to invade Internet networks in the out of reach areas.
A robot expert at the U.S. company known as Aerial Assault, David Jordan, has unveiled an unmanned flying vehicle at the Defcon hacking conference in Las Vegas.
The robot expert David Jordan has equipped his unmanned flying drone with software tools capable of performing penetration testing used by hackers and security researchers looking for weaknesses in computer networks.
The robot expert David Jordan said that “This unmanned flying drone which is also known as “Aerial Assault drone” uses the collection of software tools to scan all the unsecured networks. Hence, it records all the gathered information and sends it back to its owner along with the exact GPS coordinates”.
Moreover, the robot expert at the U.S. company known as Aerial Assault, David Jordan, also said that “There has never been this capability before”.
The open-source technology which was used by the robot expert David Jordan to build his Aerial Assault drone makes it very easier for hackers and security researchers to customize the Aerial Assault drone in the way they want.
As the Aerial Assault drone uses its WiFi signal, it enables its owners to trick laptops, phones, and other devices in an area to connect to the drone rather than a trusted network that passes the data and information like credit card numbers, banking information, and other personal details.
