The two biggest tech and science stories of the past week were the brutal hacking of Wired reporter Mat Honan's digital life and the exhilarating arrival of NASA's Curiosity rover on the surface of Mars. So here at PCMag, we decided to combine those two stories into one Google-friendly gob of geeky goodness.
That's right, folks, we're going to tell you how to hack the Mars rover.
First, a disclaimer: We don't recommend anybody actually try this. Let science do its thing, people! Nor do we believe we're giving anybody a bright idea just by performing this technical exercise. As we found out after talking to several hackers, crackers and security pros, the resources required to pull this off are prohibitive — the folks with the actual resources required to compromise Curiosity (*cough* China *cough*) don't need our cobbled-together advice on how to do it.
