    Hacker target your house & car

    Disruptions: As New Targets for Hackers, Your Car and Your House

    Imagine driving on the freeway at 60 miles per hour and your car suddenly screeches to a halt, causing a pileup that injures dozens of people. Now imagine you had absolutely nothing to do with the accident because your car was taken over by hackers.

    Hackers and security researchers are moving away from simply trying to break into — or protect — people’s e-mail accounts, stealing credit cards and other dirty digital deeds. Now they’re exploring vulnerabilities to break through the high-tech security of homes, cause car accidents or in some extreme cases, kill people who use implanted medical devices.

    Killing people compromising their implants will be murder as well as messing with someone's vehicle by hacking. The same as if someone cut the break lines.

    More technology, more improvements as well as the problems that go with it.
    Interesting and scary article Paulette.

    You can also purchase a weather radio which will inform you of severe weather even if your electricity goes out. Runs on batteries of course.
