RQ-170 Drone

The jet-powered, bat-winged RQ-170 Sentinel drone is considered one of the most advanced in the U.S. arsenal!

Just been reading around the web some are saying it was downed other saying it has hacked and landed safely. So I want to know what you guys think.

Do you think Iran downed it or did they "hack" the drone and land it safely and now taking it apart to see how it ticks.  Do you think the Malware found a few months ago was Iran?

Re: RQ-170 Drone

It is parked at the same base as the predator drones that had their control systems infected with fake AV malware, oh but don't worry it was just "credential stealing software" not a keylogger :p  I smell a load of fail.  Obviously the DoD will not admit that their drones were hacked.  Then again not admitting it will just have us all figuring they were anyway.  Need to start shoring up those systems!

Re: RQ-170 Drone

the captured drone looks intact, that backs up the Iran's claim that they bought it down. it's hard for a malfunctioned drone to land so safely. but either way it must be embarrassing for US that their technology got into the hands of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps.

Re: RQ-170 Drone

Not only did it land safely, but its self destruct mechanism didn't go off.  I'm sure the Russians or Chinese helped them, and Iran will certainly share it with them.  Oh yeah, and the manual on how to use the drone is even on the internet.  :facepalm:

Re: RQ-170 Drone

Interesting article about how Iran might have hacked the US drone.
