According to Business Insider , a group of researchers show how a Tsela Model S can be hacked and stolen within minutes. Researchers from KU Leuven university in Belgium demonstrated that hackers can secretly clone the key fob of a Tesla Model S and steal the car within seconds — and with only $600 worth of simple computing and radio equipment. The researchers brought their findings to Tesla — which rewarded them for exposing the security flaw — and Tesla responded by adding a software update with two factor authentication using a PIN code, and it offered updated key fobs to customers with additional security. However, if Model S drivers haven't updated their software and don't have a new key fob, their cars are still theoretically vulnerable to this type of theft.
