Hack a car

You can read instead of watching video if you like. Ever heard of Michael Hastings...
Hope video shows up.

I love a good conspiracy theory, but to me it sounds like a bomb blew up the car, not a remote hack into the car computer's system.

I'm not too worried about someone controling my car via bluetooth. Of course I don't have much dirt on any high profile people or events.

Apparently, the Prius can be hacked and controlled remotely:

Hackers plan to offer blueprint for taking over Prius, Escape


Two well-known computer software hackers plan to publicly release this week a veritable how-to guide for driving two widely owned automobiles haywire.

According to Reuters, Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek will release the findings -- as well as related software -- at the Def Con hacking convention in Las Vegas, showing how to manipulate a Toyota Prius and Ford Escape.

The research, conducted with the aid of a grant from the U.S. government, can alternately force a Prius to brake at 80 mph, veer quickly and dramatically, or accelerate, all without the driver’s prompting.

The two hackers have also reportedly figured out a way to disable a Ford Escape’s brakes while the vehicle is traveling at “very low speeds,” no matter how hard the driver attempts to stop.
In both cases, the would-be hacker would have to be inside the car in order to tamper with its computer, according to Reuters.

Yeah...no.

They gutted the dash to interface with the various computers. Not a remote hack at all.

Cars don't have wi-fi signals from the ecu to hack into.

There are wi-fi and bluetooth dongles that plug into the OBDII port.

Yeah and they were hooked up to a lot more than just the obdII to do this. And even if it was just that, still requires a break-in.

Hmmm - Maybe this could explain the alleged Prius unintended accelerations situations, some of which have been or are the subjects of lawsuits against Toyota. Preplanned at the instigation of lawyers to provide grounds for lawsuits and huge monetary awards? Or by owners for the same reason? Potential conspiracy theories abound . . . .
