LG and Honeywell to Develop Connected Car Cybersecurity Solution
It’s a story that’s several years old now but certainly still stands out in my mind. WIRED senior writer Andy Greenberg was introduced to two individuals who developed a tool that was capable of hacking a Jeep using nothing more than basic internet access. The video opens with a clip of Greenberg parking his car when all of a sudden his brakes stop working.
That right there was the moment I decided I wasn’t quite ready for a totally connected car. I’m perfectly content driving around in a shoddy old lemon if it means I get to maintain control over my driving experience without the threat of being hacked—at least until security measures were put in place to make it much harder to hack these things.
