In this paper, we present bAdvertisement, a novel attack method against advanced driver-assistance systems (ADASs). bAdvertisement is performed as a supply chain attack via a compromised computer in a printing house, by embedding a “phantom” object in a print advertisement. When the compromised print advertisement is observed by an ADAS in a passing car, an undesired reaction is triggered from the ADAS. We analyze state-of-the-art object detectors and show that they do not take color or context into account in object detection. Our validation of these findings on Mobileye 630 PRO shows that this ADAS also fails to take color or context into account. Then, we show how an attacker can take advantage of these findings to execute an attack on a commercial ADAS, by embedding a phantom road sign in a print advertisement, which causes a car equipped with Mobileye 630 PRO to trigger a false notification …
