On July 21, tech magazine Wired ran an article wherein reporter Andy Greenberg got a front seat to a very scary show (http://www.wired.com/2015/07/hackers-remotely-kill-jeep-highway). The writer drove a vehicle under controlled conditions as a “human crash test dummy” while security experts Charlie Miller, with Twitter, and formerly of the National Security Agency; and Chris Valasek, Director of Vehicle Security Research at the IOActive consultancy, carjacked Greenberg’s ride in motion from miles away.
NAFA’s FLEETSolutions article, “Car Hacking: Preparing for the Future Now” sent a ripple of concern through the Association upon its publication. Wired Magazine’s experiment continues to prove this is a topic of utmost urgency.
