Can you imagine a future where cyber attacks target our manufacturing processes and cause machines to break or vehicles to crash? The researchers at an Israeli university can, and they describe one such scenario in a recent paper about the “dr0wned” attack. In this case, the “white hat” attackers target 3D printer files used to create propellors for a drone. While it’s a somewhat novel attack vector today, I suspect this sort of scenario will get bigger in the future as 3D printers become more popular. Watch our Daily Security Byte video to learn more.
