Forget hacking accounts, computers or mobile devices – security engineers from Indiana have managed to hack the software inside the Toyota Prius and Ford Escape.
Using a laptop wirelessly connected to the car’s electronics, Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek were able to remotely control the brakes, the accelerate, change the speedometer, switch the headlights on and off, tighten the seatbelts and even blast the horn.
The project was funded by a grant from the U.S Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to highlight the security risks affecting modern-day cars.
