Hackers might have disrupted the work of computers at A320
Hackers might have disrupted the work of computers at A320 Germanwings airliner, which crashed in the French Alps.

This is what the British newspaper Huffingtonpost writes on Thursday.

Aviation expert Matt Anderson in his letter to the Financial Times said that there might be another explanation for the A320 crash, namely – the external electronic hacking.

"It could have been electronic hacking of the aircraft's navigation system by malware or electromagnetic interception," – said Mr Anderson.

Anderson is not the first expert in the field of aviation, who said that hacking could have been the cause of the crash.

Earlier, it was reported that the transcript of A320's second black box confirms that pilot's actions were deliberate.

The investigation has already provided some evidence that pilot's actions were deliberate.
