Bruce Schneier refers us to an article in Wired magazine on how big rig trucks could become a target for electronic hijackers, just as some newer car models have earned that dubious distinction. Being able electronically to hijack or disable a 33,000 pound over-the-road truck is pretty scary. Hackers don’t mind scaring people, though, whether they’re stationary or mobile.

This Wired piece on the hacking hazard to trucks is the latest we’ve seen on the “brave new world” of technology we’ve entered and need to surmount in security terms. Pay it heed.
