Several major automakers such as BMW
, GM and Mercedes all offer similar remote-control apps. This experiment was not the first time security researchers have played around at controlling cars remotely. In May of 2010, a team from the University of Washington exploited a diagnostic computer system known as the Controller Area Network to operate car locks remotely and disable their brakes. We can only hope that if you Google Subaru Outback security, these guys won't be on top of the search results.
