Tesla to release a patch after Model X is hacked

Tesla Inc. said it will push a software update after its Model X electric car was successfully hacked by a security researcher. Lennert Wouters of Belgium's KU Leuven university said that he was able to "fully unlock, start, and steal" a Model X by exploiting its security flaws.

Wouters told Wired that he was able to "use his own computer with a Bluetooth radio to connect to a target Model X’s keyfob, rewrite the firmware, and use it to query the secure enclave chip inside the fob that generates an unlock code for the vehicle. He could then send that code back to his own computer via Bluetooth. The whole process took 90 seconds." The update should be released this week.
