A cyber security researcher's claim that he managed to control a plane mid-flight through its in-flight entertainment system has drawn criticism from the cybersecurity community.
"We have primarily focused on being in the airplane and hooking up through the in-flight entertainment," said Chris Roberts on Fox News.
An FBI search warrant obtained by APTN says Chris Roberts took control of a flight briefly and caused it to fly sideways for a short time.
