Security researcher barred from United Airlines flight after hack tweet

Let me begin by saying that Chris Roberts made a couple of bad, though humorous choices when he decided to tweet in jest about compromising on-board systems on an airplane.  That said, the threats he has detailed in his various public and private sessions are legitimate and should be addressed with great haste and vigor.  I believe United is largely overreacting to his comments and overstating the capabilities of their in-flight security controls.  This is certainly an intriguing conversation to follow in the coming weeks and months.
