Telsa can remotely control your car.

They can lock the doors while you're in it and drive the car to the nearest police station via computer.

So can hackers. We better close down Tesla for good and ban new technology all together. You know, stop progress and conserve the present.

Meanwhile, back on Earth.

Source please. This sounds exactly like a "dream scenario" someone on Tesla forums posted to get public opinion on and someone reposted it elsewhere as fact.

On-Star is no different. Have you ever wondered how the On-Star operator can locate your car and send a tow truck or ambulance to your location? Toyota, Honda and Nissan all have similar telematics in their cars. All modern cars with telematics know where you are, what speed you are driving, what radio station you are listening to, what phone numbers you dialed or what number called you if you use your phone through the car's Blue Tooth. Even without telematics cars with OBDII systems record speed, hard braking and emissions history that is down loaded when you smog your car, or can be downloaded by your insurance company after a collision to see if you were speeding, regardless of whether or not you are at fault. Rental car companies too. You pretty much have to buy a car manufactured before 1996 to avoid this.

On-Star can unlock your doors if you are locked out. That feature is a big part of their advertising. Not hard to reverse the process. Just saying .........................

In his remarks, Musk insisted that no American or Chinese company would take the risk of collecting private data and sharing it with their government.

"Whether it’s Chinese or U.S., the negative effects if a commercial company did engage in spying -- the negative effects for that company would be extremely bad," Musk said.

What if the government made it a law that the company has to share with the government

It is already the law in China that any entity that uses the internet there must allow the Chinese government unrestricted access to its data.

Ummm... OK.... but that doesn't address what the first guy said at all, nor my request for a source. He's saying someone from a remote location can drive a Tesla to the nearest police station "via computer". This is schoolkid level sci-fi fantasy.

How do we find equilibrium between good and bad? Fascinating techs fall in hands of hackers is kinds of inevitable, especially something like this.

I was commenting that it is possible to remotely lock someone in a Tesla, but it looks like the hacker community has already figured out how to exploit weaknesses in a Tesla Model S and take control of one through a compromised CAN-Bus.

I don't care about that, because it's got nothing to do with my original post. Your point (whatever it is) is disconnected to my question to the other user.
