A 19-year-old claims to have hacked into more than 25 Tesla cars in 13 countries, saying in a series of tweets that a software flaw allowed him to access the EV pioneer’s systems.

David Colombo, a self-described information technology specialist, tweeted Tuesday that the software flaw allows him to unlock doors and windows, start the cars without keys and disable their security systems. Colombo noted that he could not drive the cars remotely.

Colombo also claimed he can see if a driver is present in the car:
