A Different Kind Of Computer Crash

Modern cars are chock full o' computers; it's been a slow progression of a few chips here and a few chips there over the past few decades, but now even "regular" cars have a lot of computing power, and more and more that power is connected via wireless, bluetooth or 3G/4G data networks. Some of the same techniques and technologies that can hack into computers and smartphones can be carried over to hack into recent model automobiles. It's early days yet, and apart from some isolated instances, no major episodes have been reported - but whether the goal is theft or simple mayhem, you can be pretty sure where there's a will, there's a way.
