Self-driving cars and the cybersecurity risks and data breach risks they pose

Self-driving cars and the cybersecurity risks and the data breach risks they pose: an unanswered question…

Thieves can already break into cars by hacking remote-entry / keyless entry systems, and security researchers have proven before that the onboard computers of cars can also be hacked, leaving them free to control various parts of a vehicle.

As we move – at speed – toward self-driving cars and lorries being on our roads very soon, the issue of self-driving cars and the cybersecurity risks / data breach risks they pose must be addressed; especially with Tesla – one of the pioneers of self-driving cars – previously being hacked themselves!

If Tesla can be hacked, how safe are self-driving cars?

If Tesla can be hacked, how safe are self-driving cars?

It’s no secret that many carmakers are racing ahead with self-driving car technology. Since Tesla brought the futuristic dream into reality, many other companies have quickly followed suit.

Here in the U.K., we have seen government approval for the creation and testing of these autonomous cars on our motorways in a bid to be at the forefront of this new and innovative technology. However, there is still one major hurdle – aside from robot cars crashing due to mistakes that cannot be rectified by anything other than human reaction – and that’s hacking fears.

Security flaw leaves cars vulnerable to being hacked

Researchers say they’ve discovered a security flaw that can affect any vehicle featuring “controller area network” systems – AKA a “CAN bus” – which is basically the network that interconnects components in a car. The “CAN bus” interconnects things like parking assist features, electric windows, and engine control units.

Researchers say hackers can access the connection and bombard it with error messages until the system shuts down to protect its other components. An attacker can therefore theoretically switch off safety features like airbags, ABS brakes, power steering or perhaps even lock someone out of their car.
