A recent article from Car and Driver magazine mentions that connected cars are great until they’re not.
They mentioned that a recent Detroit Free Press article shows that vehicle hacks are more common and more dangerous than most people realize. According to the report from Upstream Security, there were at least 150 automotive cybersecurity incidents in 2019, a 94 percent year-over-year increase since 2016.
This trend is unlikely to reverse any time soon with more communication methods built into new vehicles, including massive over-the-air update technologies.
This comment from the article got our attention –
“The more sophisticated the system is, the more connected your vehicle is, the more exposed you are” – most all executive vehicles have a “sophisticated the system.”
