(Before It's News)

The world is dangerously unprepared for a global disaster sparked by cyber attacks on space infrastructure, experts have warned. Authorities are not doing nearly enough to stop space assets being hacked and used maliciously, according to a warning from security experts.

The consequences of such a hack could be disastrous – anything from damage to trade and financial services to terrorists taking over strategic weapons.

Much of the world’s infrastructure is dependent on space machinery – almost every important business or technology on the ground is powered by space assets. And while governments have done a great deal in looking to secure those technologies on Earth, they could easily be threatened from space.
