Weekly Review. Tesla hack. Saab 900. Exit Saxony.

In today's weekly review, we briefly digress from the actual Saab topic, because there was an interesting topic beyond our brand this week. The Chinese company Ken Security Lab has managed to completely hack the Model S. Not a specific Tesla problem in itself, but something that affects every car with internet access.

Tesla hacked

It is strongly recommended to install the latest firmware - Tesla communicated this this week. Quite frankly, I was just waiting for a report of this kind! Mobile computers are the future. A future full of updates and security patches. The Ken Security Lab staff did it, they hacked through the Model S.

They open doors, sunroofs and play with the vehicle quite impressively. You manipulate the brakes and can intervene in the steering. It was just a matter of time before a Tesla would be hijacked remotely, that was clear. Ken Security Lab immediately reported all errors to Tesla, where they were fixed in cooperation with the Chinese security experts.

Does anyone have a bad feeling about these prospects? Maybe you think you're better off in one of those old, analogue Saabs, as long as you're allowed to drive with them and not considered environmentally incompatible. Then perhaps you should keep the next weekend free to secure spare parts for his antique cult-mobile.

    Traffic will never take place without risk. However, when I see how many serious accidents happen today because drivers are distracted by SMS, mobile phones and Pokemon, I wonder if self-driving vehicles are not safer despite the hacking risk.

    Then people can devote themselves to their core competencies ......

    These vehicles or technologies did not trigger any requests from me. Certainly not. You really can not imagine that. But with appropriate security precautions against hacker attacks can certainly make good money .........

      TESLA plays its updates OTA. Over the air. So overnight, without cables ohne these cars are constantly connected to the Internet ... you just have to confirm this. Other features are also transmitted in this way. There is a recall campaign and / or workshop appointment for hacked cars from other manufacturers (actually all others). This is not the future but now.
      And TESLA deals with such actions openly; I think that's very positive.
