Submission + - Hacker Disables More Than 100 Cars Remotely (wired.com)

FrigBot writes: This is about a guy who was fired from a greasy car dealership that made use of remote web-enabled payment reminder systems. Basically they can disable your car if you're behind payments, or honk the horn at will to remind you a payment is due. Anyway the guy stole someone's password to the system to do his vandalism. But I think the real story is that car tracking systems like this even exist in the first place. See also Pay Technologies, http://www.payteck.cc/
