I think this article was based in part on the 60 minutes segment that aired on Sunday, where they demonstrated taking over a Chevy Impala remotely. They did it by dialing the OnStar number of teh car and overloading the OnStar system with data until they could insert a program that allowed them to get access to ECUs and send commands over riding the occupants inputs.

Pretty scary! I'm considering disabling the OnStar system since I'm not subscribing to it.

Here is he 60 minutes clip https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0NjOSOs8r28&t=6m40s
 
My subscription ran out so I can only assume it's inactive or not working after 5 years or so .

Also beware of smart TV's and computer cameras .
