Electric vehicles are not the only parts of the growing EV industry that can be hacked and remotely accessed. The charging stations that power up such vehicles (EVCS) are also connected to the internet, and this makes them very vulnerable to malicious attacks. Everyone has been predominantly worried about the loopholes hackers find in electric cars, but now it is time to discuss all the other equipment electric vehicles need to operate, such as the public charging stations.
Attacks on EVCS can have real-life implications. Car drivers, car manufacturers, and even the city’s power grid could be negatively affected when hackers decide to tamper with the stations.
