Car hack
Nice blog.Car hack is one of the common robery in many cities. Most of the people are sailing fraud cars by creating duplicate documents. So the user must do more verification on the car as well as on the documents. By doing this only he may skip away from fraudulent activities. There should be some proper legal arrangement by the Govt which will act as hurdlle for the hackers.

Car Hack
There are different crimes in New Work City based on car theft, car hacking etc. The article says now Audi 8, BMW; Mercedes etc are hacked by Black Hat people. The issue is very big & critical as it is not safety for car users. There are many features in latest cars but there is no guarantee of safety to cars. These hackers can anywhere hack a car sitting outside home.

Re: Security Overlooked
After working with many different medical device manufacturers, I have to say that I agree.  Most of these companies have never even considered security in their design process or do not understand it.  For example, one infusion pump company that I have worked with sent all of their data unencrypted over wifi, accepted all their commands unencrypted and had a hard set admin password.  After confronting the company over these matters their response was, "These are areas we do not see as a priority to change at this time."

Hopefully, the automobile industry will take security seriously so we can avoid any major issues, but I have my doubts.

Security Overlooked
This is a good reminder of how important security will be for IoT. While those of us who are concerned about these connected devices can certainly avoid them (for now), a big concern should be all of the connected medical devices that lack any form of security.

Why the hell does a car's brakes and steering need to be networked. Sounds pretty ludicrous that the radio can talk to the brakes. Just wait till driverless cars come in, then we'll see some real problems. I think we're becoming to smart, and lazy, for our own good.

Re: Chrysler responds
Surely the most simplest/obvious threat is the most important to stop. No access into the network, no control of the controllers on the network and also, and as already mentioned, segregate the network(s).

Buckle up
I note while the Jeep, Infiniti, and Escalade made the top list for the most "hackable" they couldn't crack IIHS' top list for safety. First, the autos are the safest vehicles out there which makes them even more dangerous when a hacker takes charge and steers the car for you.

Re: How about TVs?
I'm glad that smart peope are on top of these new treats from all the mundane "things" in our life that we take for granted. But they have their work cut out for them. There are orders of  magnitude more "things" in the IoTs than in the just plain internet we are used it!

Re: How about TVs?
What the car hacking, medical device and upcoming TSA system and satellite hacking research show is the the potential for public safety to be compromised as well. That is the scariest part. The good news is the good guys are trying to find these vulns before the bad guys do.
