Businessweek Highlights Hijacking Threat Among Driverless Cars

According to the article, FBI states hackers could potentially use self-driving cars as "lethal weapons" by controlling them remotely.

A recent article from Bloomberg Businessweek highlights the threat of hijacking among driverless cars.

According to the article, driverless cars are at a heightened risk for hijacking due to people being able to access the vehicle remotely. The FBI states that hackers could potentially use these vehicles as “lethal weapons” by controlling them remotely; however, police can also monitor these connected cars more easily.

To prevent hijacking, self-driving cars would need “much more security,” according to Andrew Miller, chief technical officer at Thatcham Research, a data supplier for British vehicle insurers.

“As fast as people come up with software and encryption processes, the criminals come up with ways around them,” he said.
