See How Easy It Is To Hack And Fully Control A Car [Video]

At last month's Black Hat Asia conference in Singapore it was demonstrated how easy it is to hack a car. Hackers were able to use commonly available items, sometimes worth less than $20, to gain control over a vehicle.

Watch this presentation from the same guys who presented at Black Hat Asia, Alberto Garcia Illera and Javier Vazquez Vidal. This video is from last year's Def Con 21...

By using an Engine Control Unit (ECU) and communicating via a GSM Cellular Radio the new-and-improved tool allowed attackers to control a car from miles away. The device used to hack the car can be attached quite easily by either crawling under the car or getting under the hood.

Simple functions like rolling down windows, sounding off the alarm, blowing the horn etc. can be performed with cheap hacking tools, but hackers at the conference warned that more serious functions could be affected too. Functions that could even lead to accidents.
