How to Hack a Car: Phreaked Out (Episode 2)

In this episode of “Phreaked Out,” we met some of the top security researchers at the center of the car hacking world. The goal isn’t to make people crash: They highlight security holes in order to highlight flaws in car technology, intended to pressure auto manufacturers to be a few steps ahead of their friendly foes.

Information security researcher Mathew Solnik gave us a first-hand demonstration on how to wirelessly send commands to the car and remotely tell it what to do. With a little over a grand and about a month of work, Solnik found time outside of his full-time job to reverse-engineer a car’s computer system to make it ready for a takeover.

From his laptop, he was able to manipulate the car’s engine, brakes and security systems by wirelessly tapping into the Controller Area Network, or CAN bus, network. Without getting too deep into the details—both for legal reasons and due to my own training-wheel knowledge of such things—he was able to do so by implementing some off-the-shelf chips, a third party telematic control unit, a GSM-powered wireless transmitter/receiver setup, and a significant amount of know-how he’s accrued over the years.

The reason for such additional hardware was to make our older, mid-sized sedan function like a newer—and arguably more vulnerable—stock vehicle, which these days often come with data connections. (We would have loved to tinker with the latest, most connected car on the market, but since we were on a shoestring budget and it’s incredibly hard to find a friend who’s willing to lend their car for a hacking experiment, our pickings were slim.)

With that said, a car whose network system is connected to a cloud server and accessible by Bluetooth, cell networks, or wi-fi is potentially vulnerable to intrusion.

    So to be a TV hacker you have to be bald with glasses and a nerdy voice.

  14. joe cristie September 30, 2017 at 10:29 am

    this is bullshit! handbrakes and normal breaks are manual devices!

  15. My SP September 30, 2017 at 10:29 am

    This is absolute horse shit, engine computers aren't connected to the Internet in any way. Some are, but only if you have on star or some other anti theft that ALREADY HAS these features. An ecu is running on a closed circuit, how on earth are you gonna "hack" into it? Only way is through the actual plug that auto shops use to run diagnostics.

  17. Joe Joe September 30, 2017 at 10:29 am

    Manual fuel kill switch, no fuel? No steal! No pump? No steal! No ECU? NO Steal! Open car with key, not remote. Can't press brake pedal down? Car won't start!!!! Manual steel brake lock! Old school anti theft still works very well even with your hacking programs , good luck!

    oh my god this is usefull to track down criminals and to stop them and to troll them this is next level right here..

  24. Dillon Baker September 30, 2017 at 10:29 am

    Can these hacks currently work on a manual transmission as well? I really don't see how these hacks can control the clutch, flywheel, and things like that. If they can't that would be really good because you couldn't go faster then the top speed allowed in whatever gear you are in. You could also shift into neutral and then problem solved for the most part. I hope this is the case. Anybody else have any information on this?

  25. Jose Rodriguez September 30, 2017 at 10:29 am

    I wish i know How to hack

    I want to build a hack for my 2002 Ford F150 XL 2-wheel-drive that exposes all 4 gears and the torque converter to the driver.
