Mr. Ambien Posted July 27, 2015 Share Posted July 27, 2015 The concept is not new, but it's being illustrated more overtly. So hackers are demonstrating with connected cars how to remotely: - Kill an engine - Cut the brakes - Control steering - Control windshield wipers - A lot of minor things (messing with the speedometer, control the radio and dash control panel, A/C, etc.) Of course, these guys have good intentions and can do this from any computer, but it's a serious security problem (and far more dire than "I can't browse porn on my computer for 2 hours while cleaning this virus out") if there's some type of concerted attack against cars.
