I honestly don't understand why so many people are against this post. This is one of the most interesting posts in the last few months.

So the dude did hack a plane with his smartphone to completely control the autopilot. Some of the app's functions were:
-Please go here: A way of interacting with the plane where the user can dynamically tap locations on the map and change the plane's course.
-Define area: Set detailed filters related to the airplane, for example activate something when a plane is in the area of X kilometers or when it starts flying on a predefined altitude.
-Visit ground: Crash the airplane.
-Kiss off: Remove itself from the system.
-Be punckish: A theatric way of alerting the pilots that something is seriously wrong - lights start flashing and alarms start buzzin

Luckily, he seems like a cool guy. If he wasn't then 911 would repeat it self quite a few times before anyone found out what was really happening.

Basically, he bought a flight computer from Ebay apparently, and used it to figure out how to hack it's wireless systems. He was able to figure out how to hack into it's auto pilot and remotely tell the autopilot where to fly the plane.

Here is a rough translation of the video's text, which makes more sense with the above explanation:

left to bottom right.
and back left and up.

If you do not want to manually fly
because that gets boring, then you can just go to a phone and send a location.

And you see that it flies there.

I think a letter to i-a-b's owners is in order. Fancy really needs to be replaced. Or at least give up the authorising of content to someone better suited.
