Then, General Motors realized it might have a problem with OnStar and worked with hackers to fix vulnerabilities. Then Tesla's own Model S electric car was hacked. Now, the Chevrolet Corvette's brakes were hacked using text messages. Seriously, the hackers communicated with the target vehicle by sending a text message. Using the text message they were able to exploit a security hole in a dongle and gain access to the Corvette's CAN bus. Once in, they sent more messages that turned off safety systems including disabling the brakes entirely. While this was merely a proof-of-concept exercise, it shows continue to bring the real-life issue we have on our hands now that our vehicles are basically rolling computers. The future, it's a scary place.
