BGP / DNS Hijacks Target Payment Systems
The BGP hijacks enabled imposter DNS servers to return
forged DNS responses, misdirecting unsuspecting users to malicious sites. By using long TTL
values in the forged responses, recursive DNS servers held these bogus DNS entries in their
caches long after the BGP hijack had disappeared — maximizing the duration of the attack.

Black Hat USA 2018 conference
Research presented has revealed that the satellite communication system or SATCOM is susceptible to cyber attack. SATCOM is used by ships, airplanes, and military units all over the world.
Some things cannot be fixed easily.
In 2014, we took to the stage and presented “A Wake-up Call for SATCOM Security,” during which we described several theoretical scenarios that could result from the disturbingly weak security posture of multiple SATCOM products. Four years later, we are back at Black Hat to prove those scenarios are real.
Some of the largest airlines in the US and Europe had their entire fleets accessible from the Internet, exposing hundreds of in-flight aircraft. Sensitive NATO military bases in conflict zones were discovered through vulnerable SATCOM infrastructure. Vessels around the world are at risk as attackers can use their own SATCOM antennas to expose the crew to RF radiation.
The vulnerability exists due to the way versions 4.9 and later of the Linux kernel handle specially crafted TCP packets. Linux kernel developers have released a patch that should address the problem.
Red Hat says all its products with moderately new Linux kernel versions are affected. The company has not identified any workarounds or mitigations besides the kernel patches.
