Siri Hacked to Remotely Start A Car

siri remote car starter

Siri has been the talk of the town since the new iPhone 4S has come out and now Siri hacking has become a fun sport for knowledgable hackers and developers alike. Today, a developer took control of a proxy server and hooked it up to his Viper Car system which allows him to turn his car off and on.

The “Siri Proxy” plugin I wrote handles interaction with a php script that runs on my web server. The php script, which I developed months ago for personal use, allows me to send commands to my car which has a Viper SmartStart module installed. Current commands accepted are: “Vehicle Arm”, “Vehicle Disarm”, “Vehicle Start”, “Vehicle Stop”, “Vehicle Pop Trunk”, and “Vehicle Panic”.
