Welcome to the arms race…

I am guessing now it won’t be long till plans for “EMP hand grenades” and manuals to shoot down small agile aircraft appear online. That’s just the nature of things and has always been true in information security. The examples are endless: you build a firewall, attackers will figure ways to avoid it. You put in a IDS, attackers will find a way to blind it. You use AV, attackers will find a way to evade it. When I see articles like this, I spend a lot of time wondering what countermeasures are being devised for it.
