Luxobarges_Are_Us Posted June 26, 2013 Share Posted June 26, 2013 Right, RT do point out that there is no real evidence that hacking has occured in this instance, but I reckon the fact that it's possible to do it is rather scary by itself! Therefore I conclude that ALL NU CARZ R SHIT. Discuss (or disgust!). http://rt.com/usa/michael-hastings-cyber-car-218/ Hastings died last week when his 2013 Mercedes C250 coupe collided with a tree in Los Angeles, California on the morning of June 18. He was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed and failed to stop at a red light moments before the single-car crash. He was only 33.Speaking to Huffington Post this week, Clarke said that a cyberattack waged at the vehicle could have caused the fatal collision."What has been revealed as a result of some research at universities is that it's relatively easy to hack your way into the control system of a car, and to do such things as cause acceleration when the driver doesn't want acceleration, to throw on the brakes when the driver doesn't want the brakes on, to launch an air bag," Clarke told The Huffington Post. "You can do some really highly destructive things now, through hacking a car, and it's not that hard.""So if there were a cyberattack on the car Ã¢â‚¬â€ and I'm not saying there was," Clarke continued, "I think whoever did it would probably get away with it."
