Two security researchers have found a way to hack into a Jeep. The pair penetrated the computer system of a 2014 2014 Jeep Cherokee last year, but have found another exploit that could give them control over a moving vehicle. The hackers demonstrated that after accessing the SUV's computer, they planted malicious code into the system's firmware. From there, they could control the air condition, radio, and even the pedals. But their latest tricks go even further giving them access to the vehicle's steering. However, they had to plug a laptop into the Jeep to make it all work.
