The FAA published an order in the Federal Register requiring Boeing, effective immediately, to modify the technology aboard most 737 jetliners built in the past 20 years so that they’re less prone to being damaged by computer hackers. The agency, through its certification-services manager, Jeffrey Duven, called on Boeing to “ensure that the airplanes’ electronic systems are protected from access by unauthorized sources external to the plane, including those possibly caused by maintenance activity.” The FAA said it is trying to avoid causing any delay in the design or delivery of new planes.
