28. But they are encrypted
Edited on Sun Dec-04-11 12:55 PM by Akarion
This is false, the controls for the UAV's are encrypted. The live video feed was unencrypted for some time due to lag or some such but people "hacking" into the feed by simply putting together a receiver that can take the signal for 20$ and watching video does not mean that its easy to hack into and take control over a UAV.

The story is most likely false until the Iranians present any evidence for their claim (not the first time they have claimed it, never presents any evidence for "security reasons").
