Oh please.

Not a threat, not particularly worried about it.

Re: 2014 Jeep Cherokee Ranked Most Hackable

pretty simplistic methodology... the authors are trolling for headlines.

It is fine to do research on automotive security. But saying a car is hackable just because the bluetooth and the brakes are on the same 'bus' makes a pretty weak case.

I also think that the Bluetooth has to be paired to another Bluetooth.

Thus you have to accept the connection.
That is assuming this Cherokee has secure Bluetooth, which is basic.

The scenario they envision is a compromised cell phone deliberately paired through BT.

FYI - I do data security for a living. I understand their theory and it isn't at all implausible. It was recently discovered that hackers compromised a bunch of items such as "smart" TVs and fridges and had them function in a botnet to send spam messages.

I am curious whether the researchers were actually able to demonstrate a functioning hack via a compromised device or if this is purely theoretical. Because there's a big difference between the former and the latter.
