What is you concern specifically ?? Do you have a connected vehicle ? Are you concerned that someone will hack you car while you are driving ? I am wondering why this needs discussion in the first place.

Thanks for getting back.

My interest covers both. I'm asking as a potential user and also for educational reasons as I am currently taking a course in Cybersecurity.

I'm going to write it's awful.

For example: Many cars now SNITCH on the drivers with reporting on not only location but speed, hard breaking and more.

Beyond that, we know that many connected cars haven't been updated and may never get an update. Example: My Leaf took about 9 months to get a fix to an issue related to it's cellular comms.

-> Let's just put this out there too. The automotive industry doesn't want to air this laundry. Our government is complicit in messaging us that everything is fine.

Back to the topic of Cars and security.

As noted above, these connected cars SNITCH on their owners as well have damning delays in getting patches to outright fixes.

1. My Leaf took 9 months to get a software fix. It was a huge issue too. The car would not start the next day if you didn't connect a battery tender.
2. The Chevy Bolt story is not only a failure due to battery issues but the software update to get the cars back on the road and out of the garage has take months.

There are a lot more stories telling us the car industry is in trouble here.
Again, our government is complicit in telling us everything is fine.
