Posted by Queensland’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) on Monday, May 23, 2018 10:37:15Cyber criminals have been targeting commercial drone operators in Queensland in recent years.
In April, a Brisbane man was arrested after police discovered a drone he had purchased was being flown by his wife.
The NCSC says drones are often used for illegal activities and the use of drones for commercial activities is not allowed under the Aviation Act.
