IN THE NEWS: NHTS PROBING CAR HACKING CLAIMS

NEW YORK (AP) -- You may have heard about it or even seen the video: hackers claiming to have gained control of a Jeep Cherokee SUV by taking advantage of a flaw in the vehicle's radio system. Now, the Feds are looking into it. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has opened an investigation into car radios made by Harman. Fiat Chrysler says it has since sealed the loophole in the system to prevent similar attacks -- and issued a voluntary recall. The federal probe will try to find out whether other cars have the affected radios -- and whether they are vulnerable.

Google says if it gives in to the French demand, it would have to field similar requests from other nations. Google said it has received more than a quarter-million requests since the law went into effect.
