The Russians are screwing with the GPS system to send bogus navigation data to thousands of ships Jim Edwards | April 14, 2019 | Business Insider Article excerpts: “‘All critical national infrastructures rely on GNSS to some extent’ — and the Russians have started hacking it…” ”GNSS comprises the constellation of international satellites that orbit Earth. The US's Global Positioning System, China's BeiDou, Russia's Glonass, and Europe's Galileo program are all part of GNSS. Your phone, law enforcement, shipping, airlines, and power stations — anything dependent on GPS time and location synchronization — are all vulnerable to GNSS hacking. A [ READ MORE ]
