It’s been 7 years since a Jeep Cherokee was famously hacked remotely

It’s probably a motorist’s biggest fear – driving on a highway only to suddenly lose control of the car. Seven years ago, that’s exactly what happened to Andy Greenberg in a Jeep Cherokee. The only thing was, it wasn’t unexpected – it was planned. Two white hat hackers gained remote access to the Jeep Cherokee and put it through a series of mini tests to see just what they could get it to do from afar. The fact that it was intended didn’t stop it from being a completely terrifying experience. It also pointed out some of the biggest safety flaws in modern vehicles. So what exactly happened that day, and is SUV safety better than it was in 2015?
