NOTE: We're bringing this 2015 article & video to you to stand your hair on end at the reality we face by the kill switch technology -- both show it can and WILL be hacked and used against you!
Watch this car get hacked & engine shut-off remotely!
Two hackers have developed a tool that can hijack a Jeep over the internet. WIRED senior writer Andy Greenberg takes the SUV for a spin on the highway while the hackers attack it from miles away.
Senate bill seeks standards for cars' defenses from hackers
A few years ago, the notion of hacking a car or truck over the Internet to control steering and brakes seemed like a bad plot point from CSI: Cyber. Today, the security research community has proven it to be a real possibility, and it's one that at least two U.S. senators won't wait to see play out with real victims.
But the security industry has demonstrated that vehicles' increasing connections to the internet create new avenues for attack. Earlier Tuesday morning, in fact, WIRED revealed that two security researchers have developed and plan to partially release a new attack against hundreds of thousands of Chrysler vehicles that could allow hackers to gain access to their internal networks. As part of the same demo, those researchers, Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek, also demonstrated to WIRED that they could use the attack to wirelessly control the steering, brakes, and transmission of a 2014 Jeep Cherokee over the Internet.
END NOTE: Neither of these Democrat Senators would meet with us (or even speak to us) while we were in D.C. They have not re-filed their bill now that the Biden Administration has mandated kill switches be placed in ALL American vehicles after 2026. Partisan politics and a near religious adherence to radical climate ideology prohibits them from now caring about the dangers of this technology being weaponized against drivers, including by the government.
