The hacking team from Keen Security Lab has been auditing the Tesla car for several months, and in those months they were able to find a vulnerability that allows them to take over Tesla brakes.
If we take in mind that electronic cars are going to be the future, it is very important that these cars are vulnerability proof – but how can you create something that is vulnerability proof?
That’s why it is important that security engineers like the team from Keen Security lab demonstrate the capabilities of hackers when they find faulty software or hardware – it opens the eyes of thousands of people and makes them aware of security vulnerabilities that can be found in any product.
They state that they used an unmodified version of the car. The Tesla car also used the latest Firmware version.
