That use to happen back in the early 90's but not so much anymore, usually an outside force like a high static charge or a dense magnetic field is the most common cause for a chip to malfunction these days.

What about the security system itself?

They are programmed into the main processor that handles engine management. The average Tech cannot reprogram the processor.
