Cyber attacks on military aviation and aerospace establishment

Do you know?

F-22 Raptor owns about 1.7 millions of line of codes , an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter about 5.7 millions and a Boeing 787 Dreamliner about 6.5 millions.

Sourced from this great post at theaviationist.com on increasing cyber attacks on military and aerospace establishments.

For instance an F-22 Raptor owns about 1.7 millions of line of codes , an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter about 5.7 millions and a Boeing 787 Dreamliner about 6.5 millions. Everything with some built in code may be exploited, therefore, with plenty of code and much current and future vulnerabilities, one may not rule out a priori that these systems will be targeted with specific tailored or generic malware for Cyberwar, Cybercrime, or even hacktivism purposes.

As the post argues, with more codes powering the aerospace and aviation machines, the threat is only increasing.

It was interesting to see no of lines of code behind various aero machines.
