Bastille Puts Emergency Warning Systems on Alert

By May 2, 2018Blog

Bastille has done it again.

The company recently unveiled SirenJack: a vulnerability in emergency alert siren systems supplied by ATI Systems, potentially affecting millions of people.

The vulnerability can be exploited remotely via radio frequencies to activate all the sirens at will and trigger false alarms, potentially causing chaos and panic. ATI Systems customers include the City of San Francisco, other large urban and rural communities, military installations, universities, and industrial sites including oil and nuclear power generation plants.

The SirenJack announcement generated tremendous media interest, with the company featured in top-tier publications including Wired, Dark Reading, McClatchy DC, VICE, and dozens of others.

The announcement has already resulted in ATI Systems issuing a patch to fix the San Francisco vulnerability.

Bastille is world-renowned for its groundbreaking research and discoveries including MouseJack, a massive vulnerability in wireless mice and keyboards, and KeySniffer, a security flaw in low-cost wireless keyboards.
