Hackers are out there, and they’ve figured out how to hack your car. The scary part about it is that they can do it anywhere in the world by just typing a couple keys on their keyboard and then transmitting the signal using GSM cell technology.

Your car is essentially a giant computer and anytime you press the brakes, push on the accelerator, flick the lights, or even turn on a blinker, your car is transmitting signals to a central computer, which means those signals can be hacked.

Some intense stuff!

Check out this amazing video from Motherboard that shows you how these hackers are doing it.

What are your thoughts about this video? Do you think this will be a growing problem?
