  1. Echoes here of the Hizbullah’s reported success (that Nasrallah reported last year) at hacking into Israeli drones to intercept the video the drones were transmitting. Nasrallah backed up his claim of this success through showing footage — and as far as I know the Israeli military did not refute the claim. If Hizbullah was able to do this with their comparably more limited budget and expertise than the Iranian military, it seems plausible that the Iranians could have pulled off this feat.

  2. Why not fly a dummy drone into Iraq, land it and see what the Iranians do with it? This article implies that the Iranians were able to land the drone intact.

    I think I connected the dots with the drone virus pretty well. I am not sure if I have read any other individual write about that. Is it speculation? Sure. Neither side will admit the truth if only to keep an ambiguity before the opponent.

    I don’t believe it was an acquired technology as stated by the analyst you referenced. I do not see any evidence of those controllers being shipped other than from that individual. In addition, if it was so publicized, you would think that we would think twice before flying a highly prized RQ-170 over Iran. Again, a huge under estimation of Iranian know-how and probably an incapacity to think: hey, maybe the Iranians aren’t as stupid as…us.

  4. I for one think the Iranians did not hack it and two do not think the have a “replicable” drone. We’ll see what the future brings but I would not advertise my strengths to my enemies(cyber hacking) and would not let them know I have their prized possession(rq170). Either they are stupid or have bad strategy.

  5. well , to analys situation, usa claimed to have lost control with drone, iranian showed an intact drone witch means taking controle of it . and it’s more likly that they have done so, iranian so confident so….
