This includes everything from large x-ray machines to time clocks, or cameras or the routers used in the system. The report is in error at least two airport systems have been compromised in the last few years, prompting cyber security upgrades at most airports. Airports are not the only ones vulnerable, banks, hotels, even police departments have been found with default admin passwords being used on what are expected to be secure systems.
