Next week, between 16 and 17 July, in Beijing, China will be a hacking contest to crack the Tesla Model S system. To our knowledge, this is the first time ever when there’s a competition organized to hack a vehicle.
Those of you who think are good can enter the contest by registering for SyScan conference and will have the opportunity to hack into a Tesla Model S system.
A Tesla Motors spokesperson told Forbes that the U.S.-company isn’t involved at all in this contest, but they do hope that all the issues found will be directed to Tesla to fix them as soon as possible. It should be mentioned Model S owners can easily report any flaws they find in their cars through the vulnerability disclosure program.
The person who will be able to take control of the Model S and do the most "damage" via a computer will win 10,000 USD.
