Title: Cyber Terrorism Crash Simulator

Abstract

This project is a test to show how easy it really is to hack into a train control system and cause potentially catastrophic problems. Modern-day train systems are incredibly easy to hack into; all it would take to cause severe casualties and property damage are a few perfectly timed keystrokes. Click over to our Train Controls page to find out just how easy it is to become a cyber terrorist.
