An unpatchable AMD chip flaw is jailbreaking Tesla cars

A group of researchers from Technical University (TU) Berlin have uncovered a vulnerability in AMD-based vehicle infotainment systems that allows attackers to unlock restricted vehicle features.

This is most noteworthy in vehicles that offer premium features behind a paywall, including Tesla which has one of the (if not the) most extensive systems of its type, though the automaker is not alone in charging for optional extras – with BMW also hitting headlines in recent months over subscription models to commodities like heated seats.
