    it's funny how the media is trying to make it into a FIAT/Chrysler issue, when, in fact, it's almost all cars that can be hacked now.

    the remote start or remote access and internet connections are all wired into the same CANBUS as the transmission, accelerator, steering, brakes, etc

    ...and aircraft.

    From the article:
    "A US hacker also recently took control of a passenger jet he was on, in the first known incident of its kind, according to the FBI. Chris Roberts is said to have plugged into the plane’s computer systems through the electronics box under his seat – and briefly moved the aircraft sideways."

    Great. So a terrorist doesn't even have to break into the flight deck, or blow himself up in place, to bring down a commercial airplane? He can do it all remotely & unobtrusively from his seat?

    Another reason I'm not flying anymore.

    a friend complained his car was stolen; he left his car running while he ran inside a donut shop.

    They did say that, but maybe not quite loud enough.

    Actually he/she wouldn't even have to be on the plane. Just wire into the electronics box ahead of time. Then when the plane was close to the ground take control. They could crash a plane into a major airport and they wouldn't even know why it happened.

    Also, medical devices have zero security on them. Pacemakers, implantable defibrillators, insulin pumps etc can be queried and adjusted remotely. Since they have zero security they can be hacked easily and used to kill. It would be impossible to tell the difference between a device malfunction and a hack.

    This is why I'm reluctant to buy most modern cars. Too many gizmos and gadgets that can fail or get hacked. Any car guy knows that electronic/electrical work on a car can get really fuckin expensive. And now these things can get hacked? Pass.

    On a related note, there are third party companies that supply OnStar replacement brains. Basically, gets rid of all OnStar command/control features, but still maintains the creature comfort features like handsfree cell phone calling, etc.
