How to Hack a Car: Phreaked Out (Episode 2)

Click here to watch Episode 3 now!

In this episode of "Phreaked Out," we met some of the top security researchers at the center of the car hacking world. The goal isn't to make people crash: They highlight security holes in order to highlight flaws in car technology, intended to pressure auto manufacturers to be a few steps ahead of their friendly foes.

Information security researcher Mathew Solnik gave us a first-hand demonstration on how to wirelessly send commands to the car and remotely tell it what to do. With a little over a grand and about a month of work, Solnik found time outside of his full-time job to reverse-engineer a car's computer system to make it ready for a takeover.

From his laptop, he was able to manipulate the car's engine, brakes and security systems by wirelessly tapping into the Controller Area Network, or CAN bus, network. Without getting too deep into the details—both for legal reasons and due to my own training-wheel knowledge of such things—he was able to do so by implementing some off-the-shelf chips, a third party telematic control unit, a GSM-powered wireless transmitter/receiver setup, and a significant amount of know-how he's accrued over the years.

The reason for such additional hardware was to make our older, mid-sized sedan function like a newer—and arguably more vulnerable—stock vehicle, which these days often come with data connections. (We would have loved to tinker with the latest, most connected car on the market, but since we were on a shoestring budget and it's incredibly hard to find a friend who's willing to lend their car for a hacking experiment, our pickings were slim.)

With that said, a car whose network system is connected to a cloud server and accessible by Bluetooth, cell networks, or wi-fi is potentially vulnerable to intrusion.

Play “Backup” PS3 Games from a Hard Drive

The video above features the world’s first method of circumventing the PS3′s security to play games from a hard drive. Unlike the Xbox 360 and Wii, the PS3 has been resilient in resisting hackers’ attempts to play ripped games. The PS3 Jailbreak features a USB chip that retails for a bit over $150 but enables users to dump copies of games to their hard drives. Additionally, running the games from a hard drive will save discs from getting scratched and load games faster.

The PlayStation 3 Water Cooled Laptop

Even though Sony is having some pretty serious security issues, this water cooled PS3 laptop is still an extraordinary build.  The entire work log is available if you’re willing to take on the challenge and build one yourself.  The 16.75”x13”x3.5” case is made from aluminum and Keyboards and speakers are built in.

You could make it even smaller with the new slim PS3 but this mod uses the earlier model with the 40GB unit. The key feature is of course the water-cooling reservoir that finds space inside the portable console. The PS3 portable laptop weighs in at 15 pounds (7kgs). Slightly heavy, we would say but still a neat case mod.

We love us a good case mod round these parts and the Wolfenstein case mod sure brings back memories. The FuG-01/ET aka the Wolfenstein PC Case Mod. This beauty was inspired by the Wolfenstein 3D video games of course.
It features dual electric gauges, one measures amperage, and the other core voltages. There’s also an old phone handset, which won’t make any calls to HQ, a carrying strap and some bullet holes. Creator “Sheyr” really did a Ben Heck of a job capturing the look and feel of the game.

It also comes with matching keyboard and mouse.
