Hackers have recently demonstrated their ability to take control of automobiles and perform functions such as slamming on brakes at freeway speeds, turning the wheel, and turning off the car remotely. As computer technology and integration in cars increases, so does its vulnerability to hackers, recent reports have shown. In a few demonstrations, hackers would plug in a laptop to a port used by mechanics to diagnose problems with the car, and were able to take control of the car through their computer. In an even scarier demonstration, hackers were able to hack into the same functions via cell phone and bluetooth. These vulnerabilities to cars are a very real revelation not only about your safety from hackers when operating your vehicle, but about your safety from hackers when using any computer based technology. In my opinion, I seriously doubt that anyone driving their car is in any danger of being hacked, but the awareness that any technology that you possess could be hacked at some point in the future is very important. As technology advances, especially in the field of biomechanics and implants, serious damage could be done via hacking if there are any vulnerabilities.
