OnStar Hack Remotely Starts GM Cars

Not wanting to be upstaged by Chrysler, GM has announced that its cars are hackable too. Wow, the competition in the auto industry really is fierce. big grin

Simply place the box somewhere in an OnStar-connected car and wait for the driver to start up the RemoteLink app within range of the vehicle. The driver's smartphone should automatically connect to OwnStar's network and, voila, the hacker now has all of the car owner's information (email, home address, final four digits on a credit card plus expiration date), and control of the car.
