Tesla Hacked as part of competition

Looks like they've made some progress, at least in opening the doors and sunroof:

 

Zhejiang University students have hacked the Tesla Model S with an attack that enabled them to open its doors and sun roof, switch on the headlights and sound the horn - all while the car was driving along.

 

The hack was part of a competition at the annual Syscan conference in Beijing, where a prize of $US10,000 was offered to anyone who could pop the smartcar's doors and engine.

 

From The Register.

Re: Tesla Hacked as part of competition

That is a bit scary...............I can imagine driving down the highway at 70 miles per hour and a hacker is tailing you and decides to open your doors and roof......................
