I can relate to this story. Our computer was hacked while out of the country and weíve had a hell of a mess to fix. These hackers need to be held accountable. Nobody wants to go through this.

What an idiot. You get everybody riled up with your stupid running around claiming car electronics can be wirelessly hacked. You fail to mention that the only way hacking can happen is if the ECUs are directly connected to either a PLC programmer or a computer.
I also challenge your bullish-t about your own computer being hacked. If you are stupid enough to own a computer and don't install a good firewall, then it's your own fault. But in your case it's just another of your fake stories. Liar.

Q, I never said anything about car electronics being hacked wirelessly but that is an interesting take.
Also, if you have a virus on your machine a hacker can utilize the pings until he finds an open port. That renders your firewall useless.

I will have to look into your comment about hacking a car wirelessly though, which is spooky.

You are either full of donkey doo doo, or you're just stringing this silliness out for effect.
Either way, you're just what amounts to a cheap shill. Have you ever tried getting a friggin life, or is that asking too much of a compulsive obsessive egotist?

I agree about the part where you say you don't think.
The rest of your rap is, well, just crap.
Down to your usual standard.

Obviously I know a bit more than you do. I never said a computer couldn't be hacked. Nevertheless it's difficult to do this. Not at all like it is on the movies you watch. A computer firewall is very secure, if you use a router to the Internet its' inbuilt NAT is the most secure firewall there is, blocking anything that anyone aims at your network unless it was requested by your machine. If you have a good active anti-spyware/virus running and keep it up to date that isvall the protection needed. And be cautious when browsing the Internet. Both of these protect against the more common problem of infections passing out personal details. You won't be hacked unless you want to be.

Unless of course, if like you and Root, you get caught in lies and use it as an excuse.

Get butt slapped, then get stupid. Typically, when all else fails,Tesla resorts to the sexual innuendo. Pitiful. Or could it be he's a closet homo? We wonder. Maybe we should have a poll.

Maybe it's just a case of Tesla gets off talking dirty. Wouldn't be surprised.

It's really very easy to hack-proof your computer when you go away. Turn it off.

You're absolutely right. But In Root's case, his hacking story is a lie. Root's using that excuse to hide his frequent indulging in gross insulting and x rated conduct. Hypocrite and bigot. He lies like a rug.

Yes I agree with that, in most cases. In our situation itís a server that must stay connected around the clock. We have the problem fixed now, thanks to a new IT guy.

You are such a pathetic liar. Your garbage has been posted for many months. No server on this planet would be out of commission for that long. Besides, just about every server on the planet is equipped with much beefier protection than the average home PC. And you talk about integrity?
Unbelievable!!

We were absolutely devastated. Glad itís all over now. Our IT guy (contract) took down the server the day we contacted him and we were back up and running the next day for a one day absence. What a mess.

There are three kinds of liars. Liars, Liars, and Damn Liars. Your story fits the latter category. Change your name to Pinnochio.

Hackers can actually hack your smart TV also. They can turn on the camera and you won't even know they are watching you. I believe more safety measures need to be implemented in this new age of technology.

Thank you for this useless piece of information, but we know it is merely a smokescreen for your big coverup to cloak your reputation as a purveyor of Internet filth.
Yes, certain makes of smart tvs can be hacked (Samsung), but that requires a level of sophistication well beyond the every day hacker.
Good news is a simple piece of tape over the tvs camera is an effective low tech solution to the possibility.
Once a liar, always a liar!

I was talking to my IT guy on the phone yesterday and he said theyíve been able to do this for many months now and itís not hard to do.

Iím still going to look in to see if a car can be hacked wirelessly like our friend Q suggests.
