  • As unmanned aerial vehicles (or drones) become more prevalent in modern society, it is crucial that an understanding of the vulnerabilities present in drones becomes more widespread. This paper will discuss some of the modern uses of drones and the possible risks inherent in their use, and will go into detail on a number of vulnerabilities present in drones today, including GPS spoofing and jamming, drone-specific malware, and data extraction and reverse engineering. The goal of this paper is… CONTINUE READING
