Seriously, this hacking thing has gotten way out of control. And these idiots publicly reveal it at Blackhat instead of approaching the auto industry with this information quietly. Now every script-kiddy in the world will want to do this.

Didn't you read the report? The hackers have been working with Chrysler, who have released a security upgrade for the affected vehicle.

Right you are... I should have slowed down and read it more carefully.

The two researchers say that even if their code makes it easier for malicious hackers to attack unpatched Jeeps, the release is nonetheless warranted because it allows their work to be proven through peer review. It also sends a message: Automakers need to be held accountable for their vehicles’ digital security. “If consumers don’t realize this is an issue, they should, and they should start complaining to carmakers,” Miller says. “This might be the kind of software bug most likely to kill someone.”

This proves that too many things in the modern world have computers in them. Cars a decade ago could not be hacked like this, they didn't have these vulnerabilities because they just had simple electronics within components, not complex computers running everything. Computers are brilliant, but they are vulnerabe to failures and hacks of many kinds, there are systems which should not have any computers within them, systems which do not need them, cars are one such system. The same goes for keyless entry systems, the desire to be modern and include computers where a mechanical system had worked fine for more than half a century leads to more problems than it solves.

This no doubt will take all the fun out of high speed chases.

Maybe news like this, if news like this happens often enough and in a wide enough range of fields, will be enough to make people realise that it is rather foolish to have EVERTHING being "smart". Perhaps popular desire for :a car that is just a car(rather than a computer on wheels), a fridge which is just a fridge (rather than a computer with some pipes, coolant and pumps tucked around the back), infrastructure which is just infrastruture (rather than a network waiting to crash at the first coronal mass ejection)... might return.

So much for the DRM fight going on with automakers wanting to not allow automobile owners having access to their proprietary code.

Just one of many articles on that, subject. Now you can say you were hacked when you tweak your performance module.
