DroneSploit is a drone exploit program that includes various techniques to gain access to it. It targets commercial WiFi-based drones that first appeared in early December.
Theoretically, drones are computers that "fly" and like all computers, can be vulnerable to attacks. They may also contain significant amounts of data that could be vulnerable to cyber threats. Understanding these risks can help you better secure your drone and prevent the loss of data or assets.
The framework consists of old and new types of attack against a variety of multiple drones, such as passive and active surveillance, deauth attacks and frameworks to break into drone-controller circuits. The goal is to automate the whole process and simply carry out and display the results in real time.
The framework is still limited in terms of hackable drone models based on WiFi (eg AR Drone, DJI Tello, Mavic Mini) but not RF based drones (DJI Phantom 4, Mavic Pro etc. .), but the goal is to collect so many exploits that it makes it easy to access vulnerable drones. With standard information security standards, it seeks to inform users of the dangers and to carry out simulated attacks against their own systems in order to better protect them.
For drones that allow the modification of wireless access points (WAP) and related passwords, you will need to customize them before the flight. Disable open connectivity and make sure networks are protected with up-to-date encryption standards. Where possible, use MAC filtering to ensure that only your trusted devices can connect. Check your drone action policy for what happens when the device loses connectivity and document the process for any unexpected actions it may take.
This project is available in PyPi and can simply be installed using Pip:
[email protected]: ~ # pip3 install dronesploit
This is an example of how DroneSploit works to change the password or SSID of a specific drone model.
