Full remote control of ALL modern U.S. market cars PROVEN
Created on 22 June 2013

Hastings' 2013 Mercedes could have instead been hijacked via remote
control, run to full throttle with all driver input disabled, and rammed
into a tree.
A team of hackers from the Department of Computer Science at the
University of Washington conducted a study which has proven that all
cars equipped with antilock brakes sold in the U.S. can be hacked via
remote control and have their brakes entirely disabled with the car in
motion, throttle revved, and remain fully operational with the key
removed and the car in park with all driver input entirely ignored.
Though I myself think Hastings was murdered beforehand, parked and
burned because the initial fire pictures showed a car with no front
impact damage and a blown up rear end, only to be interspersed with
scenes of extreme automotive carnage later, I am going to introduce here
an entirely new possibility that could have happened. That Hastings'
2013 Mercedes could have instead been hijacked via remote control, run
to full throttle with all driver input disabled, and rammed into a tree.
Many people know about GM's Onstar which maintains an always on
cellular internet connection to the heart of the engine control system
and has been that way since the 90's. But few people know about the
Federal mandate, which in 2005 forced manufacturers to include a similar
always on internet connection via the cell network in EVERY car sold in
America, Onstar or not. And this team of hackers has proven that a
remote connection can indeed allow commandeering of these cars (in their
case they used a remote controlled laptop plugged into the OBD port
rather than the cell connection) that could be used to turn the car into
a murder weapon.
The issue is with all cars that use networked control modules which
use the CAN (Controller Area Network) Protocol, which functions in a
manner similar to a wired computer network which connects PC's. Each
module in the car, be it the ABS controller, throttle controller, spark
controller or even the modern radios, communicate via this network which
also integrates with the main engine control unit. If any one of the
devices on this network can be hacked (and the team proved that ALL can)
it can be used as an insertion point through which total vehicle
control can be taken away from the driver and the car operated at the
whim of a remote attacker. And the Federally mandated always on cellular
internet connection in all cars 2005 and later provides a remote access
point through which ANY car can be hacked, provided you are high enough
in the government to be priviledged with the ability to use this
There is little doubt Hastings Mercedes had a camera in it somewhere
(cameras are super common on high end cars) which would have allowed an
attacker to know exactly where Hasting's car was going, to give a visual
of their attack and allow them to see what they were doing when they
hijacked his car from a comfy drone desk a thousand miles away and drive
it to a perfect crash. I don't personally think this is how they did
it, but the capability is definitely there. WHAT IF?/p>
The CIA favors car accident deaths above all other assassination
methods because the plausible denyability factor is so high, and even if
all evidence seems to make the driver appear innocent, it's easy to
stop such a defense by blaming drugs or alcohol.
I am sure many readers are tired of people making claims and then
producing a lengthy document which only spuriously supports what has
been stated in an article. That is NOT the case with this one, it's ALL
IN THERE, Read it and weep. Your car, provided it is new enough, has the
potential to be a bona fide murder weapon via the always on internet
Here is the original link to the document, and if that mysteriously stops working, I have uploaded it to my own server HERE.
You will discover that particular document to NOT be a waste of time.
If whatever you get does not include them taking the car out on an
aircraft runway and creating a situation that could have killed the
driver, you did not get the real thing.
