Gotta love it. Hackers at their convention, like they need one, will publicly put out a way to take control of specifically Toyota Prius and Ford Escape. Able to brake the car when doing 80 mph or turn it...like into a crowd, off a cliff. This research was funded by our own tax dollars in a grant supplied by Uncle Sam too. So if I follow this story correctly, we paid for hackers to hack cars, then they make that info public, and what do you expect to happen ?
I guess the more digital everything becomes the more hack-able it also becomes. Guess it beats the old way of trying to kill someone by throwing stones at them until their dead. Now just hack a Prius and send them off a cliff. I only hope when the car makers get a hold of this info they create some security blocks for these cars. The liability issues has to be enormous.
