    Own a Drone? Fly by this advice.

    Chinese drone maker DJI left users at high risk of spying and hacking under security flaw



    The world's largest drone manufacturer has had to patch a security vulnerability that left users' photos, videos, and data wide open to hackers.

    Key points:

    • Vulnerability listed as high-risk, users only had to click a link to be exposed
    • Check Point says spying on enterprises and individuals could have been possible
    • DJI said there is no evidence that the vulnerability was exploited


    Chinese drone giant Da-Jiang Innovations (DJI) commands more than 70 per cent of the global market, supplying products for personal, commercial, and even military use.

    But there have been major concerns about drone security and privacy issues, particularly surrounding the possibility of criminal data hacking and Chinese government surveillance.


    Worst case scenario could see military drones hacked
