Hacking team exploits Tesla Model 3 zero-day — win R1.8 million and the car

Security researchers successfully showed off Windows 11, macOS, and Tesla Model 3 zero-day exploits on the first day of Pwn2Own in Vancouver, Bleeping Computer reports.

On day one, the winners took home $375,000 (R6.8 million) in prize money. Synacktive won a Tesla Model 3 after successfully exploiting a time-of-check-to-time-of-use (TOCTOU) attack against the electric car.
 
Very cool, but this is why i am against cars that as basically computers on wheels

You just need a kid to download bmwhack.exe off of Pirate Bay, wirelessly upload it by spoofing the BMW updater, and your brand new M3 is off on a joyride in the bush.

Incredibly unlikely to happen, but I prefer it when they have to break the windows to steal my car. At least someone might see or hear.
