'Digital radio signals can be used to seize control of cars'

  • Car infotainment systems can be targeted by hack attacks that could even put lives at risk, according to a security firm. NCC Group says hackers could potentially take control of a car’s brakes and other crucial systems.

    The British firm has reportedly found a way to carry out such attacks by using data through DAB radio signals. Newer car models have tens of millions of codes running on their interconnected computers, experts say.
