Hackers are now useing laptops with wireless technology to hack in to expensive cars computers, over ride the system and immobolise the alarm.They then start the car after a few taps of the keys on the laptop the car is gone.
What next? bank cash points burglar alarms.
It seems every new piece of innovative technology makes us less safe

New technology is always a new playground for hackers to try out their dirty deeds.

My solution is to drive a crap car - nobody interested in nicking it ;o)

I already drive a crap car, what bothers me are the implications for other uses this wireless technology can be used for that could affect all of us
