Re: There ought to be a moratorium on connecting any wireless systems to the canbus
When we all have self-drive cars we'll look back with a nostalgic tear in our eyes at the level of problems we are seeing now. It will seem like Atari boot sector viruses in a pre-Internet world all over again.
The cars will get a constant stream of software updates, map updates, traffic updates, messages between self-drive vehicles, messages from the road network, and doubtless a bunch of other stuff which hasn't even been thought of yet. Many of these will have more or less exploitable flaws, as will the cars' systems for processing them.
