"require extensive technical knowledge, extended periods of time to write code, and prolonged physical access to the demonstration vehicle," and that the Jeep the researchers used "appears to have been altered back to an older level of software," the unpatched version, the statement said.

Oh, you mean like pretty much all hackers and all major hacks?

Eyeroll goes here.

Re: Fingers crossed
The good news is Chrysler/FCA US has a bug bounty program now through Bugcrowd. That to me seems like a good sign.

Fingers crossed
Although I'm a big proponent of the growth of automated vehicles, hacking does worry me. While I don't see myself as being high-profile enough for someone to want to hack directly, my real concern is botnets of compromised vehicles could perform actions en masse at certain times causing huge disruption and risking lives.

All I can do though really is hope that manufacturers take this sort of threat seriously enough.
