The most interesting Internet-connected vehicle hacks on record

“Several years ago, a team of IOActive researchers demonstrated how they could compromise a connected car system in order to run a Jeep off the road.

According to the firm, automakers are now introducing security measures at the start of manufacture more often but back-end systems still have a way to catch up, with many ‘low-hanging fruit’ vulnerabilities still in existence.
