      IT experts concerned about drone "spoofing"

      There are growing concerns about drone aircraft and cyber attacks, particularly a method known as "spoofing."

      In June, researchers at the University of Texas successfully hijacked a drone with $1,000 worth of equipment. In July, lawmakers referenced the experiment during a meeting of the House Homeland Security Committee.

      Drones remain a major growth industry despite a big fight over privacy, civil liberties, and regulation.

      John Shore, information security analyst at Dynamics Research Corporation, discussed "spoofing" on Capital Insider.
