Driverless Cars Subject to Hacks

The Detroit News reports two people remotely hacked into a Jeep Grand Cherokee on a St. Louis highway last year, leading “to a 1.4-million-vehicle recall by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to fix software.” With cars becoming more connected, their vulnerability to attacks from hackers and viruses increases. Carmakers have to rely on updates and bug fixes through the cloud in a bid to “minimize the impact and duration of computer software failures and security hacks.” The article reports, “Once autonomous and semi-autonomous cars are connected to a network, drivers will struggle to find better workarounds and third-party hacks so they’re not stuck in herds of network-induced traffic jams like we were in Ohio in 1987.”

From the news release of the American Association for Justice.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
