Re: Securing transmission
Definitely! The more layers that can be applied the better. However, proper testing needs to occur to ensure that these measures are not a major hindrance to the genuine user experience.

Re: Expansion
I agree with you. When the CBA shows that the cost of security implementation is less than the the cost of the risk imposed then manufacturing will put a heavier emphasis on security.

Re: Expansion
I would venture to say that detection of physical use for a car is a bit more apparent then a laptop.

Securing transmission
Securing transmission is not the major problem but when somebody access the car and plays with electronics of system that would be something like somebody has your laptop, so additional layers of security is needed.

"...  infamous Jeep hack ..."

It makes sense. Obviously Jeep was just a sample. Most likely no car is secure today. Cost-benefit analysis will determine when car manufactures will start investing security too.

It would need to block one way other so it is dropping packets for sure.

Agree. It is good to start somewhere, we will see what else needed along the way.

Good questions. This would be like somebody having access to your laptop. What would they do?  :--))

Now that 5G is coming, at least, the communications between the vehicles and cloud would be secured.

CVE-2020-25596
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. x86 PV guest kernels can experience denial of service via SYSENTER. The SYSENTER instruction leaves various state sanitization activities to software. One of Xen's sanitization paths injects a #GP fault, and incorrectly delivers it twice to the guest. T...
CVE-2020-25597
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. There is mishandling of the constraint that once-valid event channels may not turn invalid. Logic in the handling of event channel operations in Xen assumes that an event channel, once valid, will not become invalid over the life time of a guest. Howeve...
CVE-2020-25598
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen 4.14.x. There is a missing unlock in the XENMEM_acquire_resource error path. The RCU (Read, Copy, Update) mechanism is a synchronisation primitive. A buggy error path in the XENMEM_acquire_resource exits without releasing an RCU reference, which is conceptually similar...
CVE-2020-25599
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. There are evtchn_reset() race conditions. Uses of EVTCHNOP_reset (potentially by a guest on itself) or XEN_DOMCTL_soft_reset (by itself covered by XSA-77) can lead to the violation of various internal assumptions. This may lead to out of bounds memory a...
CVE-2020-25600
PUBLISHED: 2020-09-23
An issue was discovered in Xen through 4.14.x. Out of bounds event channels are available to 32-bit x86 domains. The so called 2-level event channel model imposes different limits on the number of usable event channels for 32-bit x86 domains vs 64-bit or Arm (either bitness) ones. 32-bit x86 domains...
