(INTELLIHUB) — Leaked C.I.A. meeting notes suggest that the agency’s Embedded Development Branch was trying to acquire the capability to control vehicles remotely by accessing and altering their firmware as early as 2014.

Of the 19 “potential mission areas for EDB” listed in the document, one was listed “Vehicle Systems (e.g. VSEP)” and another “firmware.”
