Tesla didn't respond to a request for comment. Colombo said his additional discovery should be eligible for a "bug bounty" from Tesla -- consistent with the company's policy -- but officials there haven't confirmed an amount with him. He joked that he hopes the sum is big enough to cover the coffee bill he's amassed working on the original flaw the last two weeks.

Not the first instance.  Back in November a fault with the Tesla app saw drivers locked out of their cars.  Still, if you use an app on your phone as the key to your car, perhaps you deserve what you get.
