Yeah, I can't wait until hackers get into car OSs and make the engines quit, shift into reverse on the freeway, floor the accelerator in the driveway, maybe even self-start and drive away under a hacker's control. What a neat concept - steal a car from the comfort of your own home, and have it drive itself to your place, or to your favorite chop shop.

I've been experimenting with black boxes in cars. These plug into the small scart type socked under the steering wheel.

In my car an over-revving problem has simply gone away since plugging in the box.
I know of one guy who took his BMW to a dealer with an engine misfire problem only to be presented with the black box as the source of the problem.

Vehicle manufacturers or more accurately their component suppliers need to agree on standards first before they start mucking around with operating systems. It's not just that a hacker might find it funny to make your car zoom off in the night but that a legitimate action might trigger that due to the register X meaning accelerate on one model and demist on another!

I'd love to see cars offer the ability to download your data so you can analyze it yourself (or send it to 3rd parties who can analyze it).

Black boxes. I was taught at University by the person this term was named after.

Too late: Remote unlock and start for cars hacked
Of course, this requires a car that can be unlocked using a smartphone app to begin with, so your key-fob unlockable car is probably safe...

You can now, actually. There are companies that sell devices that plug into the OBD-2 interface (that jack under the dash the dealership uses when you take your car in for service) Yeah, you need to have a bluetooth capable laptop in the car with you to actually capture the data for analyzing, but it's a start...

As I write this, the wholesale price of a Pentium 4 is $3.00. There is no reason not to put these into everything and program the stuffing out of them.

Unfortunatelly looks like the car's industry isn't worried about security when implements technologic improvements for its vehicles.

Actually, if you read to the end of the article, it lays several ways that they're already working on improving security.
