Avionics Security

There have been a few news posts around technical security of the systems on an aircraft. I agree with Chris Roberts was even detained and investigated by the FBI, and later banned from United Airlines. There are stories about his tweet, which sounds more like a joke, and there are stories about him being able to hack the systems and force the plan to fly sideways.

Leaving aside the conflicting news articles, I agree with Bruce Schneier.
The real issue is that the avionics and the entertainment system are on the same network. That's an even stupider thing to do.
