Car Hacking Videos
What cars can be hacked? The list of car hacking videos below feature a variety of vehicles. The most famous car hacking video is probably the one with the Jeep Cherokee hack. Although the Jeep hack is now fixed, through a vehicle recall, there are probably more bugs that allow hacking waiting to be found. This affects all cars made today as they all depend on software, if you find a bug that alllows the software to be changed then you can hack the car. Other cars featured in the list of videos below include a Tesla, Prius, Impala, Lexus, Chrysler, Outlander, and others (Tesla updated their vehicle software to prevent any of the hacks shown). The videos show that the automotive cyber-security subject of car hacking is an interesting topic of study for security researchers. Plus of course the criminals use car hacking to overcome vehicle security and steal cars. There are numerous videos on YouTube showing thieves using electronic devices to steal cars. This is a still from a video of a car theft posted by BIMMERPOST. A thief is waiting to plug a device into the cars OBD port whilst an accomplice overcomes the physical security.
There is the legitimate hacker community for cars. If you own a car you might want to enchance the functionality or perform your own research on the capabilities of combining vehicle and computing technology. There are aftermarket devices and software that adds smartphone linked functions to vehicles, such a SmartStart, Automatic, OBDLink, or Torque. Some videos related to that side of car hacking are included in the list. Unfortunately the security of those devices can be weak.
