Methinks you'll see more observations, impacts and new/media reporting of such instances as the criminals continue to criminally exploit and adversely affect our world.
I'm glad to see you use the proper term 'criminal' for such miscreants, vice the good name of 'hacker'. <smile>

>An article in the Metro, the free morning paper on the London commuter transport network, suggests that criminals may be using GPS jamming equipment to warp the time on financial systems to allow the commission of fraud.
>Although I can't find the source of that article, the BBC has an article, presumably from the same underlying source, addressing another point in that that article, that GPS jammers are increasingly being used to defeat GPS based car tracking systems.
>The Metro mentions a risk to car ferries from the denial of navigation data.
