Remotely hacking a Jeep, while in motion..

Here’s something that I never thought I would say, or see in writing.. If you own a late model Chrysler, it’s time to update your software. A couple of astute hackers have figured out a way to leverage the cellular connected entertainment dashboard to take over control of your ride.

This is especially disturbing since it comes only months after another recent news story about a commercial aircraft passenger supposedly hacking into the planes controls via wifi, and altering the flight trajectory.

Via Wired.

I think the bottom line is, don’t connect critical controls to anything that can be controlled remotely. And if this is somehow absolutely necessary (though I can’t seem to find a use-case) then don’t make it available to the internet at large. That’s just security 101, protect your assets..
