Software experts who attack cars to release code as hackers meet

Reuters reports two well-known computer software hackers are to publish detailed blueprints of techniques for attacking critical systems in the Toyota Prius and Ford Escape in a 100-page white paper, following several months of research they conducted with a grant from the U.S. government. The hackers, who try to uncover software vulnerabilities before criminals can exploit them, will release the software they built for hacking the cars at the Def Con hacking convention in Las Vegas this week.
