"Tesla and Mobileye autopilots duped by “phantoms”
Researchers at RSA Conference 2021 demonstrated how Tesla and Mobileye autopilots can be tricked by “phantom” images.
It’s a common movie plot device, the main character thinking they saw someone step onto the road, so they swerve and end up in a ditch. Now imagine it’s real — sort of — and instead of a trick of the light or the mind, that image comes from a cybercriminal projecting, for a split second, something the car autopilot is programmed to respond to. Researchers from Georgia Tech and Ben-Gurion University of the Negev demonstrated that sort of “phantom attack” threat at RSA Conference 2021...
The novelty of the approach...is that the autopilot was shown unmodified images — an attacker need not know how the algorithm works or what attributes it uses. The images were briefly projected onto the road and nearby stationary objects, with the following consequences:...
Thus, the authors of the study concluded, cybercriminals can cause havoc from a safe distance, with no danger of leaving evidence at the scene of the crime. All they need to know is how long they have to project the image to fool the AI (self-driving cars have a trigger threshold to reduce their likelihood of producing false positives...)..."

"Tesla’s ‘Full Self-Driving’ Beta Software Used on Public Roads Lacks Safeguards
Consumer Reports' car safety experts worry that Tesla continues to use vehicle owners as beta testers for its new features, putting others on the road at risk...
CR plans to independently test the software update, popularly known as FSD beta 9, as soon as our Model Y SUV receives the necessary software update from Tesla. So far, our experts have watched videos posted on social media of other drivers trying it out and are concerned with what they’re seeing—including vehicles missing turns, scraping against bushes, and heading toward parked cars..."
