Since Apple launched iPhone 4S Siri Assistant feature, iOS jailbreak or hackers community looks very keen to explore all the possibilities which apparently seems to be endless. Recently we reported you about the Siri Protocol hack which allows you to create a proxy server and use the Siri functionality for their own applications. Hackers also provided the video demonstration of hack showing proxy server works by creating a plugin to control a Wi-Fi thermostat.
Now another milestone has been achieved by one of the developer in terms of using Siri functionality for their own purposes in which he has used once again same proxy featured hack in order to connect Siri with his Viper car alarm system. Once connected, he can now command his iPhone to lock car, enable alarm, pop trunk and even switch on his car engine.
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”.
Another video has also been shared who shows how can Siri lock your car using this hack:
