Now that one airline has been forced to ground its flights, consumers are starting to wonder: is it still safe to fly? And if it is, what's being done to ensure these hacks aren't repeated?
Sebastian Mikosz, CEO of LOT (the Polish airline that was hacked), told reporters that this is a widespread problem.
"This is an industry problem on a much wider scale, and for sure we have to give it more attention," said Mikosz, as quoted by Reuters.
Rami Essaid, co-founder and CEO of Distil Networks, agrees that development does not happen with security in mind.
"We need a fundamental mind shift," Essaid told Benzinga. "[We need to] think of the security aspect first and then develop around that."
Until things change, Essaid expects to see more hacker attacks.
