Jeep Fix Available, but hardly Deployed
1.4M vehicles is a lot of service work, and a general hassle for the owners because, unlike Tesla, there is no over-the-air-update capability. (Maybe they should contract with Chris Valasek and Charlie Miller to do it for them. ;)

While we can claim Jeep got a fix, how many Chrysler vehicles affected by the hack have *actually* been updated? I think the best we can say is that a fix for this hack is available. I expect in the automotive industry's 8D, 8-step problem resolution model, this is really only step D3: interim containment. It's not even fully deployed, let alone verified as a permanent corrective action.

IoT makers
This is the inherent problem with IoT.  IoT-enabled device manufacturers are not tech companies proper, lack the security mindset/culture of tech companies (not to mention the capability), and simply don't give two darns.  Perhaps that will change in the next five to ten years...or perhaps they'll keep trying to tell us that those kittens roasting in the oven are really biscuits.
