Video: Tesla Will Give A Model 3 Electric Car To Anyone Who & Nbsp; Can Hack It
Tesl will be the first automaker to attend the event Pwn2Own - a popular hacker contest, during which everyone is invited to hack all kinds of electronic devices. Whoever succeeds, wins the device, the software of which they managed to outwit. And this year one of these "devices" will be TeslModel 3 … The competition will take place in Vancouver in March.
Tesl has long relied on programmers and white-hat hackers to protect the on-board electronics of its cars. According to sources from Electrek, the total amount of royalties over the past four years that have been paid to hackers for the found "bugs" and weaknesses in the system is calculated hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Last year, for every bug found in software, Tesl paid $ 15,000 each … The automaker also promised not to remove the car from the warranty if the owner himself breaks into it and informs the company about the weak points found.
In 2015, "white" hackers managed to hack the Jeep Grand Cherokee crossover as an experiment, and on the move. They managed to infiltrate Uconnect's proprietary multimedia and gained full control over the car's on-board systems: they turned on and off the wipers, adjusted climate control, changed radio stations, and so on. And it all happened at speed more than 100 kilometers per hour.
