Virus writers targeting cars

Lexus Landcruiser 100 models LX470 and LS430 are apparently vulnerable to a new virus spreading through the on-board cell phone.

The virus appears to only affect the navigation system. Fortunately, the brake and steering systems are not under total control of the computer. But, it’s a scary thought that a future virus may be able to turn off the brakes on your car.

Also fortunate is that the car must be within 15 feet of an infected host to get infected themself.
