Put computers onto vehicles and that's what happens.
Put computers in vehicles and listen to owners who say "why don't you allow the driver to control braking balance while listening to Howard Stern" and you get even worse.

Fiat Chrysler is recalling 1.4 million vehicles after hackers were able to remotely shut off a Jeep in the middle of traffic according to article today in Business Insider.

Re: Will the 2016 Jeeps be safe from hacking?

Keep in mind this all started inside the vehicle but I've got a friend that put some hardware together to play with the software/network inside his 2012 Wrangler Unlimited:

Hacking the Jeep Interior CAN-Bus | Chad Gibbons' Blog

He's posted some interesting things on another Wrangler (related) Forum (I believe two threads). It's not his day job, so he does some work for a while on the side, then has to put it up for a while. Some of the work that's been publicized lately came as an offshoot of his initial curiosity and his interest in controlling accessories on his JKU based on other activities that the Wrangler reported about on its CAN (Car Area Network). ...not that he knew where the people that were asking about it were going with the queries at the time.

The point being, yes- messing with this stuff for whatever purpose can be considered hacking. He even put a message on his EVIC saying "Hacked!". However, with FCA patching holes in the cellular related communications, leaving Jeeps "vulnerable" to "hacking" from the inside could even be considered beneficial for the enthusiast community so people like him can learn stuff and the aftermarket can continue to allow us to accessorize our vehicles to the extent we are able to. Think about a unit like the sPOD that can automatically turn off some of your other lights when you hit the fog lights to ensure that you don't get a bunch of light reflected back off the fog for you. Way more cool stuff comes from these efforts than ill effects. Don't be too afraid of "hacking" your Jeep, just be glad that FCA has it on their radar now for external threats and hope they don't go to encrypting everything on the CAN so aftermarket companies have fewer things they can do to help us accessorize.
