Re: Oh, fabulous
These findings are reminiscent of vulnerabilities in ICS/SCADA products. It's a critical infrastructure problem. What's most disturbing is that the satellite equipment vendors are not even responding to CERT. At least many of the major ICS/SCADA vendors are becoming more responsive today.

Re: Oh, fabulous
Very interesting post ... satellite components in many cases lack of proper defense measures. Many satellite architectures were designed many years ago, while their life cycle is very long the cyber threats evolution is a very rapid process. New malicious agents with efficient techniques are threatening satellite architectures and the only way to protect the infrastructures is approaching security by design. The flaw highlighted in the post are demonstration of a wrong approach to cyber security.
