    Wired magazine has a fascinating new article about hacking into cars.

    It turns out this can now be done remotely, with interesting and devastating consequences.

    Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down.

    Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

    "Miller and Valasek’s full arsenal includes functions that at lower speeds fully kill the engine, abruptly engage the brakes, or disable them altogether.

    The most disturbing maneuver came when they cut the Jeep’s brakes, leaving me frantically pumping the pedal as the 2-ton SUV slid uncontrollably into a ditch.

    The researchers say they’re working on perfecting their steering control—for now they can only hijack the wheel when the Jeep is in reverse.

    Their hack enables surveillance too: They can track a targeted Jeep’s GPS coordinates, measure its speed, and even drop pins on a map to trace its route.”*
