Hackers from a Chinese security research group have developed a new attack that allows a Tesla to be exploited remotely.

Members of Keen Lab Security, who released video of the new hack Monday, demonstrated the first known remote attack against several Tesla Model S versions.

“With several months of in-depth research on Tesla Cars, we have discovered multiple security vulnerabilities and successfully implemented remote, aka none physical contact, control on Tesla Model S in both Parking and Driving Mode,” a Keen Lab Security blog post says.

“As far as we know, this is the first case of remote attack which compromises CAN Bus to achieve remote controls on Tesla cars. We have verified the attack vector on multiple varieties of Tesla Model S.”
