Yeah, and yeah. I sorta figured it had to be a man in the middle attack to work. When the mobile carriers started selling home pico cells, it was only a matter of time until someone hacked one.
Good news is that from what's been published so far, they would have to have the target car identified, have it registered with their pico cell, and then have the user legally unlock it. Then they have the code and where to send it...
