    Just the title of this article was enough to start me worrying!

    This kind of security threat is worrying. It sounds as if it could enable a very disturbing kind of safety breach - one which is dangerous, and just for "fun" rather than financial benefit of the perpetrator. I only wish the car companies could come up with appropriate developments in security to keep up with the developments in technology, rather than using the equivalent of Tamper Proof Tape and hoping it'll hold.

    Really a good technology...and secured too..

    There's a lot to get excited about in some of today's new cars, but you'd think it's encrypted/guarded, right? If it hasn't been, that's just irresponsible.

    I am especially concerned about proximity unlock. I don't care what kind of rotating encryption keys they may be using, someone will eventually be able to clone your keys as you pass next to them and just drive away with your car...

    Yeah, nostalgic for the old days when cars belched huge amounts of uncontrolled pollution ... and when your mom skidded, she hit a tree instead of the car catching it and dialing down the performance ... and the airbag was yer grandad not a life-saving device that lets you walk away from 40 mph crashes ... gimme a frackin' break, NOSTALGIC.

    between the software associated with the hybrid braking systems and the software associated with seemingly every other system in cars these days, was a matter of time before this kind of problem/danger reared its ugly head. nostalgic for the "old" days

    this is some James Bond kinda stuff. Technology has come a long way. To think my nokia phone use to only display a handfull of color shades and play snake, now we can potentially hack a car with a wireless device.
