Simultaneous hack of EV chargers could cause Manhattan blackout, NYU researchers find


The rise of electric vehicles may come with increased cybersecurity risks to the grid — multiple high-wattage charging stations could be used in tandem to launch an attack and potentially cause a blackout, according to a new analysis from New York University's Tandon School of Engineering. … “This simulation is a wake-up call to the public and policymakers, and an encouragement to take steps to protect the data generated between electric cars and charging stations — most of which could be co-opted by a hacker with college-level skills,” Yury Dvorkin, an assistant professor in NYU Tandon's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, said in a statement.
