Random Pagan Verse:
Let each High Priest and High Priestess govern their coven with justice and love,
with the help and advice of the other and of the elders of the coven, always heeding the advice of
the Messenger of the Gods if he should arrive. They will heed all the suggestions of their coveners
and strive to settle any differences among them.

The research paper that Volkswagen tried to block details a method through which an attacker could gain control over the car's engine start feature, without the key being near the car.

The attacker only needs to intercept a few communications between the key and the car, and by leveraging a security flaw in the car's built-in immobilizer, they can break the encryption key in less than half an hour, start the car's engine and make a clean getaway without ever being detected.

The fix for this security flaw involves changing the car's RFID chips, which means that affected companies need to recall all vulnerable models.

For this particular reason, Volkswagen sued the researchers in a UK court, trying to prevent them from publishing their data, arguing that this paper would make it very easy for a hacker to steal VW cars.

While true in their arguments, the problem is that Volkswagen hasn't been recalling cars to fix them in the meantime, and eventually, after two years of litigation, the court has allowed the researchers to publish their findings.
