Airborne 07.27.20: Massive Garmin Hack, Daher HomeSafe, ARTEX ELT 345

A number of computer media reports are providing details behind the massive Garmin ransomware attack that appears to have started last Thursday and brought many of their aviation services to a standstill.

The most recent reports assert that Garmin is being hit up for a $10M Ransom via a ransomware strategy known as 'WastedLocker.' Media publication, 'BleepingComputer' has reported contacts with a Garmin staffer confirming the severity of the attack, the amount of ransom, and providing details that the company has heretofore refused to provide--despite the fact that Garmin's perils also have the potential to put others in harm or at hazard. Daher announced the certification of HomeSafe on its TBM 940, authorizing the availability of this emergency autoland system that would automatically bring the aircraft to a runway touchdown if the pilot becomes incapacitated. HomeSafe received its approval from both EASA and FAA airworthiness authorities. Daher is the first aircraft manufacturer to receive simultaneous dual certification from EASA and the FAA. ACR Electronics, Inc. has debuted the ARTEX ELT 345 Emergency Locator Transmitter with its recent FAA approval for multiple antenna and remote switch options. The ELT 345 is now approved with a 15-inch antenna and a new two-wire slim-line remote switch, the ELT 345 is available in three different retrofit configurations featuring flexible options that allow for easier and less expensive installations on experimental and general aviation aircraft. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
