Post-Modern Carjacking
« on: July 24, 2015, 03:54:50 AM »
If you own a Jeep Cherokee,...you will love this article: Hackers Remotely Kill a Jeep on the Highway—With Me in It, Wired, July 21, 2015
...If you don't,...you'll undoubtedly want to get one,...and give it to your ex-wife (or, her lawyer) as a gift,...:dazzled:

Don't worry, if Google has its way you won't be allowed to drive the car anyway.  :badgrin:

All the more reason to get yourself an antique V8 that does not have one transistor in it, let alone computerised control. This technology is a pig's wet dream and it will be coming to a car maker near you as soon as the technology is reliable enough. Tough about any others who work out how to do the same thing.

Sure it's not just a coincidence?  We have broken down Jeeps all over the place here.  I see more on the side of the road than moving, I'm thinking that's their natural state.  :-)

Any company that puts wi-fi on a vehicle is very irresponsible.

I would not be surprised if the governments try to implant chips in everyone.  :dazzled:
