Connected cars are potential for disastrous cyberattacks if they are not adequately protected against remote network attacks. An Israeli cybersecurity company has demonstrated the threat in a Formula 1 driving simulation by controlling the speeding car and forcing it to stop mid-way through the race. Vulnerable car systems exposed on the Internet can pose national security risk if the hijacked vehicle is used as part of an attack against physical installations or when transportation systems are crippled when an entire fleet of vehicles is disabled.
