2015/08/06

IDG News Service - (International) Tesla issued a security update to its Model S vehicle August 6 after security researchers from Lookout and CloudFlare were able to leverage six flaws that allowed them to turn off the engine while it was in operation, change the speed and map information displayed on the vehicle's touch screen, open and close the trunk, and control the radio. The researchers reported that the hack required physical access to the vehicle.
