    David Colombo, who is a 19-year-old self-described tech specialist, tweeted he can disable security systems, unlock doors and windows, and event start the cars without the keys.

    Colombo even claimed he knows when a driver is in the vehicle and can muck around with the stereo and flash headlights. The hacker says he has been in touch with Tesla but didn't reveal the exact flaw.
