Hacker van with “future technologies” will hack any computer from a distance of 500 meters
WiSpear, headquartered in Cyprus, presented an ultimatum at ISS World and Eurosatory for those who want to become a hacker quickly and decisively. All that you may need is mounted on a chassis of a conventional van, called “SpearHead 360”. It is claimed that the most advanced and therefore secret technologies of hacking are used here – by pressing a button, any gadget on the iOS or Android platform is opened at a distance of up to 500 m.
Broadly, hunting looks like this: a tracking station scans the air through 24 antennas and searches for the target, then establishes a connection with it and makes it connect to itself, imitating a conventional Wi-Fi access point. To do this, there are four secret modules in the van with different types of attacks, and after the connection is established, the “mediator attack” script is launched. At this stage, the system analyzes what the target is doing on the Internet and slips its exploits, trojans, backdoors, etc., for downloading, masking them for useful content.
According to Tal Dylan, co-founder of WiSpear and a former intelligence officer in the IDF, the system is trained to search for and activate a huge, if not exhaustive, number of vulnerabilities in mobile OS. Yes, and Windows or Mac OS hack is not at all more difficult, at least several devices at once, without limitation by type – smartphones, tablets, laptops, PCs, etc.
The basic version does not include drone, which carries on board special equipment, in addition to the signal repeater. It is needed to keep track of the target at a distance, but it will cost at least $ 1.2 million in surcharge, at the price of SpearHead itself at $ 3-5 million. The company does not disclose customer lists, but expects to be able to sell 2-4 hacker wagons in year.
