JFK airport taxi system hacked to allow drivers to skip the queue

Two men have been charged with two counts of conspiracy to commit computer hacking, carrying a maximum sentence of 10 years, after hacking into a taxi service system at New York’s JFK airport.

Working with Russian hackers, US citizens Daniel Abayev and Peter Leyman came up with a plan whereby taxi drivers would pay them to take control of the dispatching system to be the first ones to the terminal booths instead of waiting in line.
