Submission + - Tesla Model S has hidden ethernet port, user runs Firefox on the 17" Screen ( 1

FikseGTS writes: A Tesla Model S owner located a 4 pin connector on the left side of the Tesla Model S dashboard that turns out to be a disguised ethernet networking port. After crafting his owns patch cable to connect with the Tesla’s port, a networking connection was established between the Tesla Model S and a laptop computer.

The Model S is running a 100 Mbps, full duplex ethernet network and 3 devices were found with assiged IP addresses in the subnet. Some ports and services that were open on the devices were 22 (SSH), 23 (telnet),53 (open domain), 80 (HTTP), 111 (rpcbind), 2049 (NFS), 6000 (X11). Port 80 was serving up a web page with the image or media of the current song being played. The operating system is modified version of Ubuntu using an ext3 filesystem. Using X11 it also appears that someone was able to somewhat run Firefox on both of the Model S screens.

Is a jailbroken Tesla Model S on the way?
