A HOME-made drone capable of launching airborne cyber attacks and hijacking mobile phone calls has been developed by two computer security experts. The Wireless Aerial Surveillance Platform - or Wasp - was constructed from a former US Army target drone. Richard Perkins and Mike Tassey customised the aircraft so it can find and track internet hotspots and mobile phones. It can identify unsecured online gateways and then exploit these to launch cyber attacks on computer systems. The craft can also capture GMS mobile PIN numbers that can then be used to pay for outgoing calls, allow hackers to eavesdrop on conversations and even impersonate mobile phone towers. MO
