Jamming GPS Signals Is Easy

For the last eight months, security researcher Vlad Gostomelsky has been operating sophisticated detectors around the country to find out who’s using GPS jammers in the wild, and why. His research has turned up fascinating cases of everyday people using the jammers despite the risks — he’s seen truckers trying to avoid paying highway tolls, employees blocking their bosses from tracking their cars, high school kids using them to fly drones in a restricted area, and even, he believes, undercover police officers using them to avoid tails — and demonstrates that in the wireless world, devices that you use to avoid detection can actually make it easier to find you. You just need to be looking in the right channels.
