Fiat Chrysler recalls THOUSANDS more cars to swerve hack-my-brakes roadkill

Chairo
WTF?

Huh?

... If unauthorised, such interference constitutes a criminal act.

And if someone is authorised to hack your vehicle it is perfectly OK, right? WTF?

The company is unaware of any injuries related to software exploitation, nor is it aware of any related complaints, warranty claims or accidents – independent of the media demonstration.

Just wait until the first customer that had an accident claims he had been hacked. And good chance to proof it hasn't! Reversal of the burden of proof is the keyword here. If the customer claims, the manufacturer has to prove the opposite. And how to prove it has not been hacked if there is a known vulnerability?
