Hackers remotely kill a Jeep on the highway

July 23, 2015

Thanks to several Retiree News readers who emailed this article for posting.  While this hacking deals with Jeeps, an earlier hacking last years dealt with General Motors automobiles.

Jeep CherokeeI was driving 70 mph on the edge of downtown St. Louis when the exploit began to take hold.

Though I hadn’t touched the dashboard, the vents in the Jeep Cherokee started blasting cold air at the maximum setting, chilling the sweat on my back through the in-seat climate control system. Next the radio switched to the local hip hop station and began blaring Skee-lo at full volume. I spun the control knob left and hit the power button, to no avail. Then the windshield wipers turned on, and wiper fluid blurred the glass.
