Linked – Container ships easy to hack, track, send off course and even sink, security experts say

This doesn’t sound good.

“Pen Test Partners (PTP), a penetration testing and security services firm, demonstrated a number of methods for hacking into the satcom systems of ships, which can allow bad actors access to shipboard systems and wreak potential havoc for the vessels and the shipping industry.”

Hmm, imagine what kind of havoc could be created with a few container ships under your control?

The lack of security in these systems is sad.
