Feds shut down self-driving school bus pilot in Florida

Ars Technica - 1 hour 43 min ago

The Trump administration has taken a hands-off approach to regulating self-driving cars, but on Friday federal regulators decided that one self-driving car project had gone too far. In a sharply-worded statement, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it has ordered the French transportation company Transdev to stop transporting schoolchildren in a self-driving vehicle in Florida.

Transdev's pilot project in Babcock Ranch, a planned community, was quite modest. On Fridays, Transdev's electric shuttle would take a group of elementary-aged children to school, then take them home later in the day. The vehicle had a safety driver on board. The route was short enough that kids walked or rode their bikes to school the other four days of the week, according to a spokeswoman for Babcock Ranch.

"The shuttle travels at a top speed of 8mph, with the potential to reach speeds of 30mph once the necessary infrastructure is complete," an August press release stated.

Grand Theft Auto V hack exposed single-player games to malicious trolls

Ars Technica - 2 hours 31 min ago

Hackers could briefly create a scene like this at will even in targets' single-player games of Grand Theft Auto V.

Over the years, we've written a lot about the apparently easy-to-hack Grand Theft Auto Online and Rockstar's many, many, many attempts to prevent cheaters from ruining the online experience for legitimate players. Last week, though, players reported that trolls were briefly able to mess with the single-player portion of Grand Theft Auto V through an exploit targeting players' Rockstar Social Club accounts.

You can see an example of the single-player hacking in action in this Twitch clip, where a troll follows user SnowieLive after kicking him from an online session and continually kills his avatar in the single-player mode. "You're not safe in single player," the hacker says in a somewhat on-the-nose message in the clip. Similar clips from GTA speedrunner FriendlyBaron show hackers loading jets into his path and simply killing his character in mid-drive during a run.

Players that track the state of cheating tools in the Grand Theft Auto universe noted last week that one popular "mod menu" was advertising the newfound ability to discover an online player's Rockstar ID, a hidden string of numbers associated with their Rockstar Social Club account. With that number, hackers using that tool could take control of an online user's single-player games, with new abilities including "Rockstar admin kick, Network kick, Ragdoll, Fake money correction, Kill, Spawn vehicle, and send crew message."
