Our upcoming world with new electric, self-driving, high tech cars, continues to come with dangers like being hacked and stolen. This new bug in the code was found by a good guy, but it raises just as much concern as we’ve seen in many other cars over the years. Just because it has tech, doesn’t make it harder for the bad guys to use it. It’s a recurring theme that manufacturers continue to ignore, or even lie about on their selling points. I like the remote keyfob, but someday it may burn me too.

A Belgian researcher has figured out how to clone the EV’s key with about $300 in equipment, but he’s shared the information with Tesla and a fix is coming.
