Cars` Internet connectivity poses cyber attack threat
Wellington: With the cars becoming more powered and connected to the Internet and operated by computers, the risk of cyber attacks have arisen.
The US based National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), believes that the interconnected electronic system is helpful in creating opportunities for vehicle safety and reliability but these systems now also pose cyber security threats of a very different nature.
According to a report by Stuff.co.nz, a new office within the agency will research upon the vehicle electronic safety and analyze the potential cyber attack risks leading to catastrophic accidents.
As cars are increasingly controlled electronically rather than manually, NHTSA will be conducting the research in bringing car technology to prevent crashes.
NHTSA has prepared a testimony for a Senate Commerce Committee meeting in order to establish the new office for analyzing the possible cyber security attacks, the reports added.
