Hackers Can Now Remotely Hack Your Car

Good news, doomsday theorists: you might be right! As an article from Wired taught us this week, hackers can now get all up in your car — working your radio, windshield wipers, and, oh yeah, maybe, sorta, if-they-feel-like-it cutting your brakes. Wirelessly! From anywhere! It’s a brave, new world.

Join Jessica Chobot on today’s Nerdist News as she runs down how this dangerous new revelation might affect you, what we can do to stop it, and what it might tell us about the ups and downs of our self-driven car future.

Thanks for watching today’s show! Don’t miss the latest episode of The Dan Cave, and let us know in the comments below what you’d do to stop hackers from getting all up in your car!
