By Jim Finkle BOSTON (Reuters) – Two security experts who a year ago exposed methods for hacking the Toyota Prius and Ford Escape say they have developed technology that would keep automobiles safe from cyber attacks.

Valasek told Reuters on Tuesday that he and Miller will show off a prototype vehicle “intrusion prevention device” at next month’s Black Hat hacking conference in Las Vegas.
