Electric Car Charger Pulled from UK Market Due to Cybersecurity Concerns

An electric car charger has been removed from sale over concerns that it could be exploited by hackers to disrupt the UK’s electricity supply. The Wallbox Copper SB charger, priced at around £500, has been flagged for not meeting cybersecurity standards, making it vulnerable to potential attacks. With nearly 40,000 units sold in the UK, there are fears that hostile nations could exploit these devices to cause widespread power outages, posing a significant threat to the country’s critical infrastructure. The Office for Product Safety and Standards has intervened to prevent further sales of the charger, emphasizing the importance of cybersecurity in the rapidly expanding electric vehicle charging industry. This incident underscores the urgent need for robust cybersecurity measures to safeguard against potential threats to the national grid and other essential services.
