More and more self-driving and internet-connected vehicles are making its way to the market, which is endlessly exciting to autophiles. However, new research demonstrates how the rise of connected cars could make entire cities vulnerable to hackers. In a new study published in the journal Physical Review E, physicists from the Georgia Institute of Technology, led by Peter Yunker, and from Multiscale Systems, Inc. used physics to analyze the future of automative cybersecurity. The team focused on potential hacks on vehicles, including potential mass destruction. The work received coverage also from Fox News, Daily Mail, WSB Radio, New York Post, Electronics Weekly, Smart Cities Dive, Consumer Affairs, and Secure World
