Wired Weapons and their Vulnerabilities

Here is the Foreign Policy interview with defense futurist Peter Singer.  Singer is a consultant on the new Call of Duty: Black Ops II videogame.  The interview touches upon issues that previously had only been in the realm of science fiction.  What happens if an enemy hacks our own weaponry and turns them against us?

I think that the rush to make everything wired and connected has made for new vulnerabilities with our weapons.  You couldn’t hack a P-51, but what about one of our advanced drones?

At least someone is thinking about this.
