Easiest cars to hack? The losers are..

Hack your Car
Hack your Car

Some time ago, I wrote a brief article about hackers being able to take control of your car while you were driving. Security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek had shown how a Prius could be hacked from within a car, even though what they did could be done from outside the car. Now, they’re back showing how the 2014 Jeep Cherokee, 2015 Cadillac Escalade and 2014 Toyota Prius were the most ‘hackable’.  The 2014 Dodge Viper and 2014 Audi A8 were the least hackable. The image in this post (credit to CNN Money) shows the distance from which a hack could occur, which if driving down the road is about the average car length away or even closer if driving in side by side traffic, something you’d probably never notice someone was doing.

To read the article in its entirety, click here. This goes to show there is much more to consider when buying a car than gas mileage, payments and if your friends would think it’s cool. Maybe you’ll make yourself a target and not even know it.
