Am I Safe from Car Hackers Using Malware?

After purchasing my car, I wondered if I was going to regret my decision. At the car dealer, as I sat in the driver’s seat, the aviator style dashboard, array of digital displays, and innovative auto-sensing enhancements beckoned me to investigate further. As I was driving the car, I marveled at the plush leather seats and quick moving digital numbers of the speedometer jumping as I depressed the accelerator – my senses came alive. For 16-years, I have been driving a basic car with a plain dashboard, simple needle style speedometer, and creature comforts such as a AM/FM radio with a tape cassette. In my old car, I used to change my oil, replace my spark plugs, or fiddle around with the engine. Now, new automobiles have gone way beyond my capabilities as a do-it-yourself car mechanic. I have to take my car to the shop every time a fix it code appears on the dashboard display. I feel poorer after every visit to the mechanic because the new car requires a technician with a computer to diagnose my vehicle’s warning notifications.
