New Report Finds Security Gaps in Vehicle Technology

A new report by U.S. Senator Edward Markey (D-Mass) says that security measures used in cars are “inconsistent and haphazard.” The report also reaches the conclusion that most car manufacturers don’t have the ability to find security breaches or respond when they happen.

“Drivers have come to rely on these new technologies, but unfortunately the automakers haven’t done their part to protect us from cyber attacks or privacy invasions,” Markey wrote in the report.

The report, which collected data from 16 automakers, found a “clear lack of appropriate security measures to protect drivers against hackers who may be able to take control of a vehicle.”
