People have found a way to hack into keyless cars

A new study performed by a group of security engineers from the German automobile club ADAC cracked into 24 different car models by hacking their keyless locking systems, Wired reports. They believe hundreds of thousands of vehicles are vulnerable, and although more models could be at risk than the ones they tested, they were able to get into cars made by Audi, Ford, BMW, Honda, Kia, Mazda, Subaru, Toyota and others. The hack is called an “amplification attack.”
