It’s amazing how many incredible things we can do with technology when it comes to our cars. Like the ability to monitor your tire pressure in your car.

But of course one of the problems with technology is that there are people out there, thieves, who will find ways to use the tech to steal.

Here’s a very interesting example:

Cars hacked by researchers through wireless tire pressire [sic] monitors

We heard the first reports of researchers proving that you could hack into automotive electronic systems earlier this year. That work was based on tapping into the OBD-II port normally used by mechanics for reading diagnostic codes. That method of car hacking, however, is of limited value to cyber criminals because it requires having physical access to the underside of a car’s dashboard.

The world marches on and so we have to change and adapt too.
