There was a news item last night regarding the hackers who proved they could take control of the jeep.

What was clear was auto makers need to rethink how they have set up the autos that they have built internet access into. They need to separate out items such as starters, transmissions, lights and steering etc from the internet enabled devices.... suspect as more people become aware of how some automakers have the systems set up and how they can be hacked & what the hacker can do, the purchase of a used 2015 cars with internet access in the future may not be a good thing unless the auto makers do a recall and fix the issue. Something tells me they will not though.

Have a hunch though that a few auto makers are scrambling to fix the issues with the way they have everything wired into the internet on their 2016 model years.

Today, Chrysler just recalled 1.4 million because of the hack.

Good to hear. In reality they did not have a choose - it was a *big* safety mistake on their part not to have separated out the systems. Wonder what other auto manufactures will need to do the same.

Yes, and an even scarier prospect - hackers could theoretically commandeer certain aircraft through their WiFi system, because their data and avionics networks arent properly separated from passenger WiFi.

How the auto manufactures justify charging for map updates is a mystery to me.
Using a "TOM-TOM" is high tech, I have friend with an old Chevy who uses smoke signals!

I just went to my dealer yesterday for update, paid them $60, now I have to get it back since it is now a recall issue. Oh well, at least I'm safe now. Wait till Monday to raise hell....

Makes me appreciate my 1974 FJ40 Land Cruiser all the more. No radio, no cruise control. When I need ventilation I have a swell little vent down low that I can kick open with my foot. Windshield drops down, manual choke, only minimal electronics under the hood and, best of all, no smog requirements in California. Of course, I can't tow anything but a little utility trailer with it, but it sure makes me remember that driving was, once upon a time, a little more exciting.
