Since last year, there is no doubt that it’s possible to take control over a connected car remotely. Despite this, we can see zero uncontrolled cars on the streets that obey only to long-distance hackers. So, is it a real threat or a hypothetical possibility?
Judging by debates at RSA 2016, the answer is complex. Right now the threat is at minimum, but it’s going to increase with time. In several years the situation will be far more dangerous. What’s worse, car industry is organized in such a way that manufacturers would probably be solving these fundamental problems for decades. So if we don’t want to lose the rush completely, it’s high time to act; fortunately, many manufacturers understand that as well.
