Car Hacking Now Gets Easier with a Cheap New Gadget

Car Hacking Now Gets Easier with a Cheap New Gadget

Hacking a car isn’t a conventional activity even among the most seasoned of criminals. To be able to control the functioning of a car via remote is a highly specialized activity that is limited to hi-tech experts who have undergone years of training in how to do this. Now however, all that one needs to be able to do this is a laptop computer and a gadget that comes for a price as low as sixty dollars. CANTACT as the device is known has been created by Eric Evencheck and is easy to manipulate and use.

CANTACT can be easily connected to the USB port of a computer at one end and a truck or a car port at another end, with a network dashboard underneath that can help to create a cheap and easy interface. It needs a smooth internet connection to operate well. Evencheck hopes to release this in the market as a free and easy to use open source software that will make car hacking for amateurs a lot easier than what it used to be in the past. No doubt car users are now going to be incredibly wary with the advent of this sneaky gadget in the market.
