I shudder with the thought that someone can remotely control the various functions of my car, putting me and my family in immediate danger. I was hoping that companies like BMW would have strong protections against hacks like this from happening, but I would not leave it to chance. Technology allows us greater convenience, but the downside is that it opens us up to more chances of backfiring. Peter - http://www.pmwltd.co.uk/

"When the Stuxnet attack came to light [...] Alexander suggested that the U.S.ís critical infrastructure be isolated on its own secure network, distinct from the Internet." Weren't the attacked plants completely offline?

The more connectivity we demand, the less security can we aspire to have. Security must be part of the design and not an afterthought. I have a feeling this is a problem larger than the automotive industry.

By reading this i feel cars without these devices are better. But any way one more layer of security checks with artificial intellligence will solve this hacking. Needs faster AI proceesing of all the collected information from various sensors,cameras,transducers and commands.

We already got a glimpse of software impact on real life through Toyota Prius story. That really make us aware if some critical functionality are hacked then how much of an impact it could be on persons life. Imagine abduction through remote, mass virus attack that leads to car failure e.t.c. I remember bond movies in which they remotely use to control and play around with cars.... will be reality soon.

Compromising on the Car;s safety by way of attacking its embedded system by entering through the network is a serious matter. Apart from restricting the critical systems to a strictly local ( local to the car) network the other way to protect the car's internal network is to use some special protocols ( apart from the standard TCP/IP based protocols or those industry standard CAN networks.
