"While increased use of electronic controls and connectivity is enhancing transportation safety and efficiency, it brings a new challenge of safeguarding against potential vulnerabilities," the agency said in a statement. It said it knew of no consumer incident where a vehicle was hacked.
"This particular attack was not performed remotely over the air, but as a highly aggressive direct physical manipulation of one vehicle over an elongated period of time, which would not be a risk to customers Michael Kors Wallet David Jones and any mass level," Daitch said.
So they will not be providing information on how to hack remotely into a car network, which is what would typically be needed to launch a real world attack.
Ford Motor Co spokesman Craig Daitch said the company takes seriously the electronic security of its vehicles. He said the fact that Miller's and Valasek's hacking methods required them to be inside the vehicle they were trying to manipulate mitigated the risk.
They were sitting inside the cars using laptops connected directly to the vehicles' computer networks when they did their work. Michael Kors Purse With Gold Chain Handle
"It's entirely possible to do," Hanson said, referring to the newly exposed hacks. "Absolutely we take it seriously."
"Imagine what would happen if you were near a crowd," said Valasek, director of security intelligence at consulting firm IOActive, known for finding bugs in Microsoft Corp's Windows software.
A spokeswoman for the three scientists said they would pull out of the prestigious Usenix conference because of the restraining order. Both universities said they would hold off on publishing the paper, pending the resolution of litigation.
The two say they hope the data they publish will encourage other white hat hackers to uncover more security flaws in autos so they can be fixed.
A group of academics described ways to infect cars using Bluetooth systems and wireless networks in 2011. But unlike Miller and Valasek, the academics have kept the details of their work a closely guarded secret, refusing even to identify the make of the car they hacked. government. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has begun an auto cybersecurity research program.
The two "white hats" hackers who try to uncover software vulnerabilities before criminals can exploit them will also release the software they built for hacking the cars at the Def Con hacking convention in Las Vegas this week.
Toyota Motor Corp spokesman John Hanson said the company was reviewing the work. He said the carmaker had invested heavily in electronic security, but that bugs remained as they do in cars of other manufacturers.

"It's time to shore up the defenses," said Tiffany Strauchs Rad, a researcher with Kaspersky Lab, who previously worked for an auto security research center.

Miller and Valasek said they did not research remote attacks because that had already been done.
BOSTON Car hacking is not a new field, but its secrets have long been closely guarded. That is about to change, thanks to two well known computer software hackers who got bored finding bugs in software from Microsoft and Apple. government.
"I trust the eyes of 100 security researchers more than the eyes that are in Ford and Toyota," said Miller, a Twitter security engineer known for his research on hacking Apple Inc's App Store.

Still, some experts believe malicious hackers may already have the ability to launch attacks.
They said they devised ways to force a Toyota Prius to brake suddenly at 80 miles an hour (128 kph), jerk its steering wheel, or accelerate the engine. They also say they can disable the brakes of a Ford Escape traveling at very slow speeds, so that the car keeps moving no matter how hard the driver presses the pedal.
But it is not as scary as it may sound at first blush.
A group of European computer scientists had been scheduled to present research on hacking the locks of luxury vehicles, including Porsches, Audis, Bentleys and Lamborghinis, at a conference in Washington in mid August.
