In-flight WiFi Risks Airline Security, says GAO


As reported at telecoms.com, the GAO has concluded that in-flight WiFi runs the risk of increasing cyber-security threats against airlines, aircraft, and air-traffic control information systems.

Regardless, of course, people will demand their WiFi,  and the airlines will provide it, thereby making air travel far more miserable. Maybe the airlines can charge a ridiculously high fee that users will bitch about but gladly pay, and reduce baggage fees. No, that'll never happen. What was I thinking?
