FikseGTS (3604833) writes "A Tesla Model S owner located a 4 pin connector on the left side of the Tesla Model S dashboard that turns out to be a disguised ethernet networking port. After crafting his owns patch cable to connect with the Tesla’s port, a networking connection was established between the Tesla Model S and a laptop computer.

The Model S is running a 100 Mbps, full duplex ethernet network and 3 devices were found with assiged IP addresses in the 192.168.90.0 subnet. Some ports and services that were open on the devices were 22 (SSH), 23 (telnet),53 (open domain), 80 (HTTP), 111 (rpcbind), 2049 (NFS), 6000 (X11). Port 80 was serving up a web page with the image or media of the current song being played. The operating system is modified version of Ubuntu using an ext3 filesystem. Using X11 it also appears that someone was able to somewhat run Firefox on both of the Model S screens.

Is a jailbroken Tesla Model S on the way?"

No thanks Tesla, the NSA is bad enough, I don't also need a car that is constantly telling you what I'm doing... and BTW it is also OK for me to do what I want with my own damn property.

This from the article:
>>>
We should also note that apparently Tesla engineers detected this hacking or exploring and sent a nastygram to the cars owner, âoeTesla USA engineers have seen a tentative of hacking on my car.â, âoecan be related to industrial espionage and advised me to stop investigation, to not void the warrantyâ. Does Tesla have an network intrusion detection system installed on the cars? Do they have the right to not allow you to tinker with your own car?
