Wired shows how to hack modern cars with cell/internet features

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.
