It looks like as map updates are being prepared for early next year (in Europe and probably in US), people should be extra careful about their wifi and cell providers. I tried to let Tesla know about some holes in their maps infrastructure, but they never replied to me, so I guess they don't care as much, even though they did close some of the holes outlined. The problem is while the holes were there, the secret key for the maps server was publically accessible for almost a year, so who knows how many people downloaded that. Having this key file would allow nefarious people to create their own "maps server" to serve their own map "updates" to your car. This is further compounded by the fact that Tesla never lets you know when a maps update is being downloaded to your car, you just gt a notification once it's done, but it's too late by then. Of course they could only do this if they are somehow positioned between your car and internet in most cases (they are other vectors, but they are harder to perform), hence the warning. And if we are lucky Tesla would finally do something about replacing the key and will protect it better next time too. It's been over 60 days since my last attempt to draw Tesla attention to the matter (over 300 days of the key accessibility), so I feel like holding on to this information is more dangerous than letting it go into the open.
