Cyber Hackers Can Now Take Control Of Your Car!

The power grid, government computers, and nearly all major retailers all have been hit by hackers in recent years. That is scary enough, but a recent experiment by a couple of computer experts is downright terrifying – and could possibly provoke a deadly result.

A Wired journalist volunteered to be part of the test.
