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

In today's weekly review we digress briefly from the actual Saab topic, because this week was an interesting topic beyond our mark. The Chinese company Ken Security Lab has managed to hack the Model S completely. No specific Tesla problem per se, but something that affects every car with Internet access.

Tesla hacked

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

Pretty impressive they open doors, sunroofs and play with the vehicle. They manipulate the brakes and can intervene in the steering. It was only a matter of time before they would hijack a Tesla from afar, that was clear. Ken Security Lab immediately reported any errors to Tesla, where they were resolved 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.

    Hacking cars - you do not even want to think about possible consequences and scenarios ... ..

      TESLA plays its updates OTA. Over the Air. So over night, without cable
      And TESLA deals with such actions openly; I think that's very positive.

    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 .........

    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 man can devote his core skills ......
