Could You Become a Victim of Car-Hacking?
It's not carjacking. Nobody with a gun jumping into the driver's seat and speeding off with your ride.
It's car-hacking. A cyber criminal hacking into a car's computer systems to wreak havoc.
Senate Commerce Committee chairman Jay Rockefeller, a West Virginia Democrat, said while he's excited about safety improvements through technology, he's concerned about new risks including cyber security.
"As our cars become more connected – to the internet, to wireless networks, with each other, and with our infrastructure – are they at risk of catastrophic cyber attacks?" Senator Rockefeller asked in his opening statement prepared for the hearing.
