80,000 Drone IDs Exposed In DJI Aeroscope Data Leak
In a data breach, a DJI Aeroscope database with information from hundreds of airspace monitoring devices made by the Chinese drone maker was made public. This database contained more than 80,000 drone IDs.
The Cybernews research team has discovered an unencrypted database containing over 90 million drone-monitoring records created by DJI AeroScope systems.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) came up with Remote ID, which is equivalent to license plates for drones, to identify the owners of all drones if they are flying in a dangerous way or in areas where they are not permitted to fly.
