Pakistani Hackers Hack Indian Planes; Force Pilots to Listen “Dil Dil Pakistan”
Times of India newspaper reported that Pakistan hackers have been trying to hack the Indian airports networking protocols for some time now. The Pakistani hackers blocked the communication between the pilots and the control tower. They do this just before landing and start playing Pakistan’s patriotic songs like “Dil Dil Pakistan” in the cockpit.
A senior pilot, who regularly takes flights to Jammu and Thoise Air Force base, said that Pakistan hackers hacked their system by matching the frequency of the communication between the plane and the control tower.
The report further added that Indian pilots have now adopted an alternate communication process to avoid getting hacked by Pakistanis.
The Indian pilot without mentioning his name said:
“We revert to the Northern Control in Udhampur. The Northern Control calls up the Jammu ATC on landline and gets alternate frequency from them. It then tells pilots to speak to Jammu on that frequency,”
