We now learn that the FAA warned Boeing that its 777 models were susceptible to hacking!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Malaysia Flight 370 was a Boeing 777.
According to information published in the U.S. Government Federal Register:
The Model 777-200, -300, and -300ER series airplanes have fly-by-wire controls, software-configurable avionics, and fiber-optic avionics networks.
The proposed architecture is novel or unusual for commercial transport airplanes by enabling connection to previously isolated data networks connected to systems that perform functions required for the safe operation of the airplane. This proposed data network and design integration may result in security vulnerabilities from intentional or unintentional corruption of data and systems critical to the safety and maintenance of the airplane. The existing regulations and guidance material did not anticipate this type of system architecture or electronic access to aircraft systems. Furthermore, regulations and current system safety assessment policy and techniques do not address potential security vulnerabilities, which could be caused by unauthorized access to aircraft data buses and servers.
With the revelation today that Malaysia flight MH370 was tracked by radar off the island of Pulau Perak – almost the opposite direction from where it was supposed to be, this writer can only conclude that hijacking is a real possibility.
MH370 was at least 350 miles off course yet no contact whatsoever was established with the aircraft meaning the transponders were off and yet the Boeing 777 has extensive backup systems and emergency beacons which would have become active on impact.
According to relatives some of the passengers cell phones are still ringing (functioning).
Interestingly the U.S. Navy has at least one P-3 Orion searching the exact area where the plane was tracked despite the fact that it was the wrong area? Don’t know what to make of this one except maybe someone knows something?
The fact is (and don’t listen to accounts of previous incidents in 1985 some 30 years ago) that it is virtually impossible for a modern plane like the 777 to just disappear, even over the ocean. Given the lack of any evidence of a crash it is becoming more likely that the plane was hijacked, especially with the Iranian and false/stolen passport connections. Look at a map and you’ll see that Bejing is to the Northeast of Kuala Lumpur and Iran is almost the exact same distance to the Northwest.
ADC-V510 Default pasword
The ADC-V510 is a camera from Alarm.com meant for use with its service only. The (A)larm (D)ot (C)om V510 is made by Vivotek and is essentially identical to that company’s IP8130 and uses all the same software.
You can repurpose the V-510 for use without the Alarm.com service as follows: Go to Vivotek and download the IW2 installation software : http://www.vivotek.com/downloads/ in the drop down box select ‘Software’ scroll down to IW2 and download and install it.
Power up your ADC-V510 and using a paper clip reset the camera to defaults by pressing in until the red led blinks rapidly and goes out. Power down the camera, power it back up and connect an Ethernet cable between it and your router. Start up the IW2 software and it will scan your network and find your camera. Once you find the camera by MAC address then you can click on the Smart Start button. At this point a login is required before you can do anything.

Once you log in you can change the password to anything you want or leave it blank for no password required. Using the IW2 software, configure the camera as needed, including setting up the wireless. When the camera reboots it is now basically a IP8130 and you can use it anyway you want.
