Bought a new car recently? It could have a security flaw!

Bought a new car recently? It could have a security flaw!
  Researchers have discovered a security flaw that could potentially (and probably does) affect all new vehicles. It allows an attacker to turn off safety features, such as airbags, ABS brakes, and power-steering - or any of a vehicle's computerised components connected to its controller area network or CAN bus.

Functional safety verification builds safer cars

 Functional safety verification builds safer cars
All chip designers set out to develop chips without bugs, but the stakes are much higher for those working on automotive designs. A cell phone crash may cause a reboot, but a bug in an advanced driver assistance system, such as lane keeping, may cause another kind of crash – with much more serious consequences. Author: Brian Davenport, Staff Engineer, Synopsys’ Verification Group
