  • A buddy of mine put a thing on his MySpace profile that looked like a Yahoo! Messenger chatbox to chat to him if you logged in, but it was designed to tell you your username and password was wrong even when it wasn't because it was actually just a textbox that you were typing in your username and password and sending it to him without knowing it. I think he did this on a Geocities or Angelfire page, as well. I was always jealous that he could do "cool things" with a computer.

  • Many cars do have a electronic e brake. But most cars can drive through an ebrake as it is. That said unless its a car with auto park or auto pilot which granted there are a few, ford has had auto parking for a few years on somewhat budget cars and we all know about tesla and some mercedes that can steer, im not sure that you could actually steer most cars. Many cars still have hydraulic power steering vs electric and power steering is mostly meant to assist the wheel. You might need to get down into the firmware on the steering rack itself to try to steer with the rack and the driver should be able to over power it if they responded fast enough. You may be able to activate brakes through an abs module through some solenoid testing procedure but generally the driver is still very much mechanically connected to the brakes and steering and most cars would have no wireless access to the can network (though i have heard thst some cars can be exploited throught the tpms sensors). Like its hypothetically possible if you have the right cross section of cars and you have physical access before hand and development time with each model of car. But generally speaking your cars arent at much risk while you're driving them and most crooks with the smarts to get into your cars computer are more interested in unlocking your doors on a dark street.
