Cars Are Officially Able To Be Hacked

A British Security Firm has hacked a Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-In Hybrid rekindling the fears of a car connected to the Internet and run by computers.

Meanwhile, the FBI and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have put out a warning to carmakers saying they need to keep a close watch on the security of their in-car systems.
