Default Ships fooled in GPS spoofing attack suggest Russian cyberweapon

Separate thread for max visibility.

Reports of satellite navigation problems in the Black Sea suggest that Russia may be testing a new system for spoofing GPS, New Scientist has learned. This could be the first hint of a new form of electronic warfare available to everyone from rogue nation states to petty criminals.

On 22 June, the US Maritime Administration filed a seemingly bland incident report. The master of a ship off the Russian port of Novorossiysk had discovered his GPS put him in the wrong spot more than 32 kilometres inland, at Gelendzhik Airport.

After checking the navigation equipment was working properly, the captain contacted other nearby ships. Their AIS traces signals from the automatic identification system used to track vessels placed them all at the same airport. At least 20 ships were affected.

While the incident is not yet confirmed, experts think this is the first documented use of GPS misdirection a spoofing attack that has long been warned of but never been seen in the wild.

We have been following a well known hacker as he has proven repeatedly now at 21 times just how easy it is to takeover the entire navigation systems of ships underway because their computer systems are set to the default install admin password, they were never changed by ship owners/Captains

GPS spoofing has been known in the hacking world since early 2012, as well as satcom datalink hacking as it is based on the simple IP over satcom engineering protocols.

The military is examining whether compromised computer systems were responsible for one of two U.S. Navy destroyer collisions with merchant vessels that occurred in recent months, Vice Adm. Jan Tighe, the deputy chief of naval operations for information warfare, said on Thursday.
Naval investigators are scrambling to determine the causes of the mishaps, including whether hackers infiltrated the computer systems of the USS John S. McCain ahead of the collision on Aug. 21, Tighe said during an appearance at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.
Investigators are not, however, considering the possibility that the USS Fitzgerald collision, which took place on June 17, was the result of hacking. #
