Hackers Can Seize Control of Electric Skateboards and Toss Riders

Imagine flying down the road at 20 mph on your electric skateboard when a hacker suddenly jams the breaks and throws you off.

I never know they could go this fast, just 5 MPH behind a Google autocar. I guess the only good news about this hack is that the “driver” can jump off, like many skateboard folks do all the time.

I hope all this security exposing research comes up with a solution common to all “vehicles” including real ones.
