Brokenwire Hack Could Let Remote Attackers Disrupt Charging for Electric Vehicles

A group of academics from the University of Oxford and Armasuisse S+T has disclosed details of a new attack technique against the popular Combined Charging System (CCS) that could potentially disrupt the ability to charge electric vehicles at scale.
Dubbed "Brokenwire," the method interferes with the control communications that transpire between the vehicle and charger to wirelessly abort the charging sessions from a distance of as far as 47m (151ft).

What are these car manufacturers thinking? With a less-than-$10 gadget and the right software, one has a "key" to open any Prius without setting off the alarm before a certain year :furious That same software can be used to disable airbag safety features, allowing them to be stolen without deploying :furious
