Another scary cybercrime news item from Dr. Stan Stahl ( ), who reports these events to give us reason to be cautious, especially if you drive a late model car. He says:

Theft via text: Cars vulnerable to hack attacks: Texting and driving don't go well together – though not in the way you might think. Computer hackers can force some cars to unlock their doors and start their engines without a key by sending specially crafted messages to a car's anti-theft system. They can also snoop at where you've been by tapping the car's GPS system. Source: VolunteerTV, August 19, 2011
