Your car, your love, your sitting duck. Of all the possibilities we're presenting, this one seems most likely to be hacked, due to the obvious fiscal benefits to anyone so tech-savvy as to hijack other people's vehicles and to the extreme simplicity of the required hacks. Did I say "sitting duck"? I meant "dodo bird strapped to a rock."
There are quite a few ways to have your way with today's electronics-heavy cars. Just recently, scientists demonstrated how one can start a Subaru Outback's engine by text message, and security experts have shaken their heads about how two people with radios can walk away with your Prius, no sweat, thanks to that handy key fob that transmits your unlocking code wherever you go. But recent research has also demonstrated that with certain digital infiltrations, such as a few extra lines of code on a CD slipped into your car's player, attackers could sabotage your brakes or get the GPS system to report back on your location.
The ol' horse and buggy never sounded so good.
