Pakistani Hackers Force Indian pilots to Listen ‘Dil Dil Pakistan Jaan Jaan Pakistan’ Song Pakistani hackers are giving nightmares to pilots of Indian carriers landing into airports very close to the Line of Control — Jammu and Thoise Air Force base, a media report said.
When aircraft are in final approach for landing, hackers from across the border often tap into the frequency on which pilots are in touch with Jammu Air traffic control (ATC), Times of India reported.
The hackers block the communication and start transmitting Pakistani patriotic songs on the frequency which play out in the cockpits.
imes of India newspaper reported that Pakistan hackers have been trying to hack the Indian airports networking protocols for some time now. The Pakistani hackers blocked the communication between the pilots and the control tower. They do this just before landing and start playing Pakistan’s patriotic songs like “Dil Dil Pakistan” in the cockpit.
“We are made to hear songs like ‘Dil, dil Pakistan, jaan jaan Pakistan.’ Hacking of our frequency has been happening for some time now. In such a situation, we revert to the Northern Control in Udhampur.
A senior pilot, who regularly takes flights to Jammu and Thoise Air Force base, said that Pakistan hackers hacked their system by matching the frequency of the communication between the plane and the control tower.
The report further added that Indian pilots have now adopted an alternate communication process to avoid getting hacked by Pakistanis.
The Indian pilot without mentioning his name said:
“We revert to the Northern Control in Udhampur. The Northern Control calls up the Jammu ATC on landline and gets alternate frequency from them. It then tells pilots to speak to Jammu on that frequency,”
