I smell a Bruce Willis movie (or is it that guy with the pony tail who slaps people a lot?). Thanks to Jim Leonard for the pointer, evidently inspired by my JetBlue non-working networking experience.

“Is the Boeing 787 safe from attack by computer hackers? With the plane still months away from its first commercial flight, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) last week issued a document that raises questions about the security of the 787’s computer architecture.”

Essentially Design News reports that there are fears of a bridge between onboard IT systems and a passenger riding a Net connection would be able to penetrate the avionics.
