Report: Wireless Connections Open New Vehicles To Cyberattacks

August 19, 2011

Digital gadgets have made new cars vulnerable to computer hackers, according to an Associated Press report.

Global positioning systems, car alarms, and other programs are increasingly connected to wireless networks, allowing hackers to sometimes unlock doors or start engines.

As more and more devices -- from cars to power plants -- become connected to the Internet or other networks, hackers pose new threats, cybersecurity experts say.

Congress and federal agencies are considering new measures to determine what constitutes "critical infrastructure," and thus subject to stricter government cybersecurity oversight.
