Hacking risk for new cars ; TECHNOLOGY [Ulster Region] [Mirror (UK)]


(Mirror (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) CARS are to get microchip security to stop hackers hijacking vehicles or making them dangerous to drive.

The next generation of vehicles will "talk" to each other to avoid crashes and share data about roads.

The EU is funding research so vehicles have their data scrambled and protected by a chip, rather than software.



Graeme Batsman, of security firm encsec.com, said cars will have a web connection and the more features they have "the more opportunities there will be for hackers to find a way in".
