Teen Hacker 25 Tesla Vehicle
David Colombo, a 19-year-old security researcher, claims to have access to over 25 Tesla vehicles in 13 countries, thanks to a software flaw in the company’s systems. Thankfully, he is in contact with Tesla’s security team right now to get things patched, otherwise nefarious actors would be able to remotely run commands, such as disabling Sentry Mode, opening doors or windows, and even starting keyless driving. Read more for a video and additional information.



Even scarier is the fact that this software flaw lets one query the exact location to see if a driver is present, leaving the vehicle open to possible theft. Fortunately, this does not apply to every Tesla vehicle, just allegedly a small number of owners. Why would a security researcher spend their time looking for flaws in Tesla software? Well, they are paying bounties of up to $15,000 USD for qualifying vulnerabilities.
