(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Those high-tech keyless car security systems aren't as secure as you thought.

In fact, they're the newest targets of hackers.

Reports say thieves can use off-the-shelf hardware and software to impersonate a vehicle's security fob, and break into a car in no more than a few minutes.

Technology experts say that--in theory--hackers can also use the car's wireless networks.

By breaking into a car's bluetooth network or a phone app, someone could control a car's steering, braking or automated parking.

Many in the automobile industry say they are taking the threats seriously and are working toward a solution.
