    This is one thing and an other is stealing vehicles. Somebody has developed a device by using which nearly all cars where the key in a lock is not used to start the car can be driven off without any problems. It was found only few months back.

    This hacking is not limited to cars. Anything connected to network is in risk. Developers are nearly totally ignorant of the risks. Expect to see plenty trouble this year.

    Damn they can even hack the Little Patrol. 1 meter auto wire and a screw driver and its gone in 60 sec.

    But then I feel safe hackers use computers not screw drivers.

    There are rumours out there that a certain accident in the States show evidence of a car hack. The driver was killed in an out of control car. Some investigators say it is a murder via a hacked car.

    Everything that is connected to a network is hack-able. Do you know you can remotely adjust the new gen pacemakers? Hack it and you switch it off.
