The Register reports about KAIST paper on automotive LiDAR spoofing published at the International Association for Cryptologic Research's pre-print archive: "Illusion and Dazzle: Adversarial Optical Channel Exploits against Lidars for Automotive Applications" by Hocheol Shin, Dohyun Kim, Yujin Kwon, and Yongdae Kim.

"In this work, we have presented and experimentally verified two types of attacks that can severely degrade the reliability of lidars. Although we have listed many mitigative approaches in the discussion, they are either technically/economically infeasible or are not definitive solutions to the presented attacks. We do not advocate the complete abandonment of the transition toward autonomous driving, because we believe that its advantages can outweigh the disadvantages, if realistic adversarial scenarios are appropriately mitigated. However, such considerations are currently absent; therefore, automakers and device manufacturers need to start considering these future threats before too late."
