At the start of the week, we heard reports that a Chinese security firm — Tencent Keen Security — had successfully hacked into a Tesla electric car yet again. In addition to leveraging a previous exploit to remotely control a Tesla’s autopilot system with a game controller, the researchers also showed how it was possible to trick the car’s autopilot system.
But while some people will see this as a horror story about the dangers of Internet-connected cars and autonomous driving systems, here are the lessons we can learn from this latest security white-hat discovery.
