Hackers Can Take Over Your Car, House

Frank Gregorsky of Discovery Institute calls to our attention two articles from Forbes (and a YouTube piece) that describe in the first case how hackers can take over your car from a distance, and in the second, how they can make computerized items in your house go crazy.

The point is, if creative young American hackers can do it, criminals and international enemies cannot be far behind.

I wish our government was up to the task of handling these issues. But, as we have seen, they cannot even keep their own secrets, let alone protect ours.

Yet, having said that, one has to be impressed by the kids the DOD has hired to explore the technology.
