McAfee: Next Airline Hijacking Will Be By Hacker Halfway Around The World

In his latest opinion piece, Mr. McAfee advises us about the shortcomings of the TSA and the very real likelihood of having a commercial aircraft downed over the Internet by a hacker sitting comfortably in his living room.

The next airline hijacking will not be caused by someone physically on an airplane, risking their own life. No, it will be done by some kid in Asia bored with Grand Theft Auto and looking for something else exciting to do. We are skating on thin ice as a country. All of our defenses are focused on a direction from which no attack will ever come again. The attack will be a digital attack, and we have zero defenses against it.
