Novel Attack Disrupts Car Charging Remotely, Research Finds
Security researchers working in academia demonstrated a novel wireless attack against the Combined Charging System (CCS) used in most electric cars today to allow third parties to disrupt the charging process remotely.
It might be time to add intelligent cars to the same category as smart homes. As cars include increasingly powerful hardware and become just as smart as many of our homes, criminals will undoubtedly try to develop attacks against them.
Today, many cars have cellular capability out of the gate, leaving them vulnerable, but security researchers found out that charging technologies are also targets. Combined Charging System (CCS) is one of the most used DC rapid charging technologies today, so it’s one of the more exposed.
