Wireless car hacking could lead to product liability disasters

Researchers at UC San Diego and the University of Washington demonstrated that a car’s electronics, including its brakes and locks, could be remotely taken over through the car’s bluetooth wireless technology.  The potential for Product Liability disasters might come through wrongdoing by criminals intent upon controlling an armored car or a delivery van carrying expensive electronics.  It also might allow a disgruntled employee attack a customer or a boss at a car dealership.  Worse, of course, are the implications for terrorism possibilities. More information about the study is available in New York Times article here.
