I know the title here is the same as the article, but why the heck did sophos choose "Texas college" for the something done by the University of Texas? I assumed from the title it was done by some small school somewhere in Texas, not UT.
By saying "Texas college", it makes it sound like some random second or third tier school did it. That's much more sensationalistic as it can easily give the casual reader the impression that pretty much anyone can easily hack these drones. If they said a team from a top engineering school did it, it would not frighten people because that's the kind of thing you EXPECT people from top engineering schools to be able to do.
