Uber has hired the hackers behind one of the most terriyfing hacks in recent memory.
You’ll remember Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek as the security researchers who last month demonstrated their ability to stop Chrysler vehicles in their tracks remotely by hacking their internet connected powers. As we shared at the time, the hack affected an estimated 500,000 vehicles. After publicizing the hack, Chrysler recalled 1.4 million cars.
In other words: Miller and Valasek made a huge contribution to public safety. They are consumer champions.
