Interception of video feeds from US drones in Iraq

“Shia fighters are said to have used off-the-shelf software programs such as SkyGrabber to capture the footage.”[1]

Why the BBC calls this a hack [cause it sounds cool I guess] I have to idea. This is a classic interception case. Get a program (SkyGrabber in this case) and start receiving the broadcasted satellite communications. The US should not have had insecure satellite communications in the first place.

  1. Hi ! I have read this somewhere that SkyGrabber is available for purchase online for $25.95 and one can even get a free 15-day trial.
