Electric car maker Tesla has once again challenged hackers to find faults in its connected cars. Elon Musk's company returns to the annual hackers' competition called "Pwn20wn" to be held in Vancouver in March. Some Model 3 cars and $ 1 million in cash will be the gifts.
Last March, a group of hackers won a Tesla 3 model and $ 35.000 for hacking into their systems. Amat Cama and Richard Zhu of the group called "Fluoroacetate" showed sensitivity to system vehicles during the hacking contest. The hackers were targeting the Tesla 3 entertainment system.
According to the manufacturer of electric vehicles, such hacking events are testing and improving systems security of.
Hackers have also shown how they could mislead an S Tesla into entering the wrong lane by using a method called "adversarial attack", a way of handling a Machine Learning model.
