Hackers are able to shut down satellites, and possibly turn them into weapons, the expert warns.
According to William Akoto, a scientist who studies cyber conflict, one of the hackers to take control of the satellites that are in orbit around the Earth, it can have serious consequences.
“The mundane end of the scale, hackers will be able to simply connect the satellites to the bottom, and the denial of access to the services they provide. Hackers can also jam or spoof the signals coming from the satellite, creating havoc for the critical infrastructure,” Akoto wrote Space.com. “This will include electrical networks, hot water networks, and transport.”
Cyber criminals are even able to send the satellites into other satellites, or to crash them in to the International Space Station, ” he wrote.

If Akoto pointed out, some hackers have already been at war against its satellites.
In 1998, the hackers reportedly took over the U.S.-German ROSAT X-Ray satellite to obtain access to the computers at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, usa. Following the instructions to the satellite to the solar panels to the sun, the batteries were destroyed, and the satellite was destroyed.
Akoto called on governments around the world to determine, due to the strict rules and regulations for cyber security, and the office of the report on all the satellite ones.
“It would be a big mistake to wait for the hackers to take control of a commercial satellite, and can be used for life-threatening, limb, and property here on Earth or in space for the solution of this problem,” Akoto will be closed.
