Cybersecurity researchers found a security flaw in drone maker DJI that could have given hackers access to owners’ data, which the Chinese manufacturer has fixed.

The vulnerability was discovered in the user identification process within DJI Forum, a company-sponsored online forum about its products, researchers at Israeli firm Check Point Software Technologies said. They said the vulnerability, if exploited, could have granted a hacker access to drone user’s DJI account without being aware of it.
