Hackers of the Future May Be Able to Disable Your Car- While You're Driving

Hackers are all over the internet, taking over your accounts and having fun with your credit cards. And soon, they could take over your car too. While you're driving. That's according to security experts who say car hacking could be the next big thing. Apparently, someone with enough know-how may be able to hack into your car's computer in the future and disable your ability to drive it. There aren't many ways to do this now but as more and more cars get internet connections, there is expected to be more incidents of these kinds of attacks.

The Boston Globe has the story.
