Hacker Hijacks Police Radio Broadcast And Calls Off Chase Of Armed Robbers


  An unknown hacker last week hijacked the Victoria Police emergency radio network to disrupt the chase of two robbery suspects in hot pursuit by the police.


 According to Australia local reports, the Victoria police were chasing an armed man and a woman who had attempted to rob a store. The two stole a vehicle and fled but the police raced after them. During the car chase, the unknown hacker came over the radio multiple times while pretending to be a real cop until the police in pursuit stopped chasing the suspects.

 The police minister, Lisa Neville described the act as "appalling" but assured that improvements to the network were already planned. The minister made aware that the Australian telecommunication company Telstra had been contracted with $12 million to upgrade the radio system to a more secure digital radio system which is used by the regional police, Lifesaving Victoria and Fire authority.

 However, the police chased the suspects to a nearby town of Traralgon where the two were apprehended.

 The Australian police are still in hunt for the hacker behind the voice transmission and are calling for anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the impersonator.
