Meticulously overwhelming its computer networks, the hackers showed that ? given time ? they would be able to pop the trunk and start the windshield wipers, cut the brakes or lock them up, and even kill the engine.
Their motives were not malicious. These hackers worked on behalf of the U.S. military, which along with the auto industry is scrambling to fortify the cyber defenses of commercially available cars before criminals and even terrorists penetrate them.
"You're stepping into a rolling computer now," said Chris Valasek, who helped catapult car hacking into the public eye when he and a partner revealed last year they had been able to control a 2010 Toyota Prius and 2010 Ford Escape by plugging into a port used by mechanics.
These days, when Valasek isn't working his day job for a computer security firm, he's seeing how Bluetooth might offer an entry point.
Automakers are betting heavily that consumers will want not just the maps and music playlists of today but also Internet-enabled vehicles that stream movies and the turn dictation into email. The federal government wants to require cars to send each other electronic messages warning of dangers on the road.
In these and other connections, hackers see opportunity.

"Airsoft" pellet guns are designed to resemble actual firearms, but they shoot round plastic pellets. The fake guns are usually distinguished from real weapons by a strip or spot of orange paint, but police said Rice's toy did not have a safety indicator. An Ohio state lawmaker has already proposed legislation that would require all such airsoft guns to come with bright or obvious fluorescent stripes.

A woman who claims to be a former NASA employee claims to have seen evidence of the most monumental cover-up in space history in 1979 - as she saw two human figures in space suits walk calmly towards the Viking lander (the grandfather of today' Mars Curiosity Rover) across the Martian surface.
'Jackie' called in to Coast to Coast AM in America this year, and asked the presenter to 'solve a 27-year-old mystery for me.'
She claimed to have been working for NASA, handling downlink telemetry from the lander - the first vehicle to send back images of Mars' surface - when she saw two people walking on the surface.
'That old Viking rover was running around,' she said, saying that she and six colleagues were watching on multiple screens. 'Then I saw two men in space suits - not the bulky suits we normally used, but they looked protective. They came over the horizon walking to the Viking Explorer.'

The last eruption occurred in 1995 but current data indicate that this latest incident could be the most severe in decades.
