Top drone maker DJI hunting security flaws

Updated 2017-09-08 09:30:45 Global Times/Agencies

Chinese manufacturer SZ DJI Technology Co, the world's largest civilian drone maker, said on Wednesday it was hunting for security flaws in its flight-control software after coders found its apps could be "hot patched" to circumvent scrutiny by Apple Inc and Alphabet Inc.

"We have updated the apps to remove the suspect code," Adam Lisberg, spokesman for DJI, said of the hot-patching problem.

"We are going through all the code now to see if there's anything else we didn't know about," Lisberg said.

DJI's camera-equipped drones, which range from palm-sized models that cost as little as 0 to those the size of a small outdoor grill, command about 70 percent of the global commercial and consumer drone market, according to an estimate by Goldman Sachs and Oppenheimer in 2016.
