PostSubject: Death by hacking is no longer a far-fetched idea   Sun Feb 11, 2018 6:24 pm

Our secrets, sometimes quite intimate, have increasingly been pilfered and exposed by hackers. So what's to stop them from going a step further and killing us using the technology we rely on?

Tesla owners say its 'Autopilot' feature makes driving easier and safer but it has attracted criticism from other quarters.

Already, unintentional glitches in technology have resulted in death, or come close to it.

In 2016, for instance, a Tesla driver was killed after the Model S car he was in collided with a tractor-semitrailer truck in Florida while "Autopilot" mode was engaged. The Autopilot mode failed to distinguish the brightly lit sky and the white side of the truck, resulting in the bottom of the trailer impacting the windshield of the Model S. While Tesla cars tell drivers they should keep their hands on the steering wheel at all times the driver, Joshua Brown, ignored this for most of his trip.
