      Having the computer, or computers, that are used to make it easier to drive a car these days hacked with bad intentions by criminals and people who like to see cars crash and burn in huge road pileups, has long been a concern. But I wonder if there are actual cases, other than proof-of-concept ones, of cars and their drivers and passengers ending their days that way, or even surviving (the drivers and passengers) without a scratch, or of anything else resulting from a car computer(s) being hacked and interesting enough to be considered as newsworthy by the likes of CNN, anywhere, at any time in the past? Just curious.

      (Of course, one can always use an EMP generator to great effect, with legislation such as the one discussed here being useless to help prevent that, since has nothing to do with hacking computers, but more with frying them.)

      Personally, I suspect that these ideas for doing in other people by means of vehicular computer meddling have not yet left entirely the Science Fiction department of Bad People Inc.
