NEW HACK STEALS A TESLA IN MINUTES VIA BLUETOOTH
Security researchers from Belgium have figured out a way to hack into a Tesla Model X by overwriting the firmware of the car’s key fob via a Bluetooth connection, Wired reports.
The hack, which KU Leuven security researcher Lennert Wouters told Wired Tesla still hasn’t addressed, could let a thief steal an entire Model X within 90 seconds.
Wouters combined two vulnerabilities, according to Wired. The first lets a hacker get inside a Model X with a hacked key fob using the car’s vehicle identification number, which is normally printed on the dashboard where it can be read from outside the car.
