SpaceX will pay you up to $25,000 to hack Starlink

Someone used a $25 home-made device to hack Elon Musk's Starlink internet satellite network.

Through a bug bounty programme, Starlink, a branch of rocketship manufacturer SpaceX, invites anyone to break into its network and discover any security flaws.

a security researcher claimed to have breached Starlink and revealed his results on August 10 at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas.

Researchers that identify vulnerabilities they have found through "non-disruptive" testing—i.e., 

any testing that does not impact user service or attacks on the infrastructure as a whole—can receive prizes of up to $25,000 from Starlink.

Normal Starlink users are unaffected by this attack and are not need to take any protective measures, according to SpaceX.

The business said that it employs many defence layers to offer protection, such that if one layer is breached, there are others working to control the issue.
