In recent years, along with the rapid development of the GNSS (global navigation satellite system), cellular network, and IoT (Internet of things), vehicle networking has entered into a wireless interconnected and intelligent era that makes remote-operating vehicles or sharing information convenient. However, the vehicle wireless networks connected to physical components of vehicles make it possible for hackers to engage in wireless sabotage. This chapter presents various vulnerable physical components, reactions from government and industry against the cyber-attacks, attacking tools, attacking practices, and some mitigation strategies.
