Elon Musk's Starlink deals in satellite Internet services, and it has consumers across 37 countries
A Belgian cyber security researcher surpasses the security system of Starlink with just a simple homemade device whose part costs only USD25
Researcher named Lennert Wouters hacked into Starlink’s user terminals and the satellite dishes (Dishy McFlatface), which are placed in homes and buildings.
Wouters detailed all these incidents at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas.
He also showed how attackers could access the Starlink system and operate their custom code on the devices.
Also, he explained his custom circuit board, which is also known as a modification chip that can be attached to the Starlink dish via his custom codes.
Wouters also made this tool available on GitHub as open source.
Starlink admired the researcher and said, “We find the attack to be technically impressive, and is the first attack of its kind that we are aware of in our system”.
The company also assured to work on it and resolve it and expressed a statement on it.
