Researchers That Hacked A Moving Jeep Hired By Uber

The researchers that hacked a moving Jeep are now working for Uber. I guess now we know why this guy quit his job at Twitter on Monday.

Security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek caused a stir last month when they found a way to remotely hijack Chrysler vehicles, using a Jeep Cherokee in an impressive, frightening demonstration. Now it looks like they'll be moving on to Uber, as Reuters reported today that the duo have accepted new positions at the company's Advanced Technology Center.
