Hacker Scientist Denied For Publishing Their Research On Cars

The latest directive from The University of Birmingham says university will not allow publication of any academic paper related to secret codes for bypassing security on Porsches and Bentleys following a high court directive.

All this had been result of a complaint registered by automotive giant, related to works of Birmingham’s computer scientist Flavio Garcia and two Dutch colleagues from the Raboud University who found out the algorithm and planned to release the same at Usenix Security Symposium, which can ease theft of a broad spectrum of automobiles.

The algorithm does its job by taking advantage of bugs in age old chips used in cars like in Audi’s Megamos Chip as immobilisers.

While the Volkswgen Group might be relaxed by the Jurisdiction, Media people are raising questions on Liberty for Researchers and Scientists and insist on publication of the Paper.
