Hackers 'could turn off your car engine' while you’re driving

Hackers could endanger the lives of motorists by turning off their car engines as they drive along, warns a software security firm.

Anti-virus firm McAfee warn that as cars become ever more reliant on computers, wireless systems such as Bluetooth, and software to function, it places them at increasing vulnerability to malicious hacking.

The firm warns that software is embedded in so many car parts now - from airbags and radios to seats and cruise control systems - that cyber-criminals could wreak havoc.

Vulnerable: Thieves could hack into your car's computer systems, something that's easier to do if they gain physical access to it

Earlier this year, researchers demonstrated potential attacks such as opening doors and starting car engines just using text messages - not just in theory, but in practice using several models of car.

Potential attacks include disabling a car remotely, unlocking and starting a car with a mobile phone, tracking a driver’s location, activities and routines, stealing personal data via a Bluetooth system, disrupting sat-nav and disabling emergency assistance, according to its report.

‘As more and more functions get embedded in the digital technology of automobiles, the threat of attack and malicious manipulation increases,’ said Stuart McClure, senior vice president and general manager, McAfee.

‘Many examples of research-based hacks show the potential threats and depth of compromise that expose the consumer.

'It’s one thing to have your email or laptop compromised but having your car hacked could translate to dire risks to your personal safety.’

Hacked off: McAfee warns that software security in cars is being overlooked

Researchers at several universities have concluded that the biggest danger for car owners comes from criminals physically gaining access to their vehicles, because then critical safety components can be hacked more easily.
However, they have also shown that an attack can be mounted to track a vehicle with powerful long-distance readers.

Consumers want to stay connected in their cars more than ever before, with internet access and smartphone and tablet integration, but McAfee stresses that car manufacturers must not overlook the threat from malware.

‘In the rush to add features, security has often been an afterthought,’ the report says.
