Israeli UAVs hacked by terrorist organization Islamic Jihad

The terrorist organization Islamic Jihad has hacked into imagery from Israeli UAVs.

A Palestinian computer engineer from Gaza was indicted in an Israeli court earlier this month for hacking into video transmissions from Israeli UAVs conducting surveillance over the Gaza Strip, according to Israeli news site Ynet.

"According to the indictment, Ouida joined the Islamic Jihad five years ago, later developing a program with which they infiltrated the IDF drone system," Ynet said "The program also allowed the organization's leadership to view footage from Israeli traffic cameras."

"Ouida also developed a program that allowed the Islamic Jihad to monitor plane traffic at Ben Gurion Airport. It also gave the organization access to passenger manifests and technical details of departing and arriving planes."
