Iraqi insurgents hacked Predator drone feeds, U.S. official indicates - CNN.com

Washington (CNN) -- Insurgents were able to use a mass-market software program to view live feeds from U.S. military Predator drones monitoring targets in Iraq, a U.S. official indicated to CNN Thursday.
The breach by Iranian-backed Shiite militants was discovered late last year, according to U.S. military and defense officials.
The story was first reported in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday.

This is mainly an issue with available satellite bandwidth. The development of devices that depend on bandwidth have rapidly outgrown the availability of it. But this will continue to be a problem from here on out. Because as long as there's a signal, there's going to be someone trying to hack it.
