‘GPS Systems Will Be Struck By Y2K-Like Bug On April 6’: Security Expert Says He Will Not Fly On ‘Day Zero’ After Governments Warn Global Devices Will Reset Due To Calendar Glitch

GPS systems could be brought down next month due to a computer calendar error says information security expert.

An expert at the RSA 2019 security conference in San Francisco this week said he predicts a Y2K like computer error for older GPS systems to take place on April 6, in less than a month’s time.

The computers’ calendars could fail if GPS devices’ with older systems flip back to zero after literally running out of time, reaching the end of their counters.
