An interesting article and video at Forbes reveals nasty new car attacks by hacking their computers . Some excerpts:
Stomping on the brakes of a 3,500-pound Ford Escape that refuses to stop–or even slow down–produces a unique feeling of anxiety. In this case it also produces a deep groaning sound, like an angry water buffalo bellowing somewhere under the SUV’s chassis. The more I pound the pedal, the louder the groan gets–along with the delighted cackling of the two hackers sitting behind me in the backseat.
A recent car-crash-death that might have been by car-hacking: Michael Hastings, the reporter who brought down General McChrystal.
And of course, we should wonder about the car-crash-death of controlled demolition expert Danny Jowenko.
