Twenty-five Tesla. This is the number of electric vehicles of the American brand that a young man of 19 claims to have checked fraudulently. The hacker praised his exploits in 13 different countries on Twitter. He thus claims to have found a flaw in the software provided by Tesla, explains Auto-Moto.


David Colombo, that’s his name, indicates without however specifying how he proceeds, to have been able to open doors and windows from a distance. He would also have managed to start the electric vehicle and deactivate all the security systems. Among the panoply of actions that he could still have done: turn up the volume of music, turn on the lights and find out if the driver is installed in his vehicle, specifies the specialized site.

Tesla teams are warned

The young hacker indicated on Twitter that he had warned Tesla. He would work closely with the automaker’s teams to successfully close the security breach. One can imagine the repercussions that this could have if other malicious individuals managed to achieve the same exploits.


Tesla is a target for hackers. In May 2021, two engineers managed to hack a Tesla Model X using a drone, recalls Auto-Moto. Without taking control of the car, they were able to unlock the doors and change the position of the seats.
