Pentagon’s new next-gen weapons systems are laughably easy to hack

New computerized weapons systems currently under development by the US Department of Defense (DOD) can be easily hacked, according to a new report. The report was put together by the US Government Accountability Office (GAO), an agency that provides auditing, evaluation, and investigative services for Congress.

Congress ordered the GAO report in preparation to approve DOD funding of over $1.66 trillion, so the Pentagon could expand its weapons portfolio with new toys in the coming years. But according to the new report, GAO testers “playing the role of adversary” found a slew of vulnerabilities of all sort of types affecting these new weapons systems.
