    It's more of a FUD piece.

    While automakers should take security more seriously in a digital age, the likelihood that someone will exploit the CAN bus is pretty low. There are easier ways to kill someone in a car so why waste your time.

    Yeah, I thought it was pretty useless when you need physical access to it unless some special hookup was available. Thought I'd post it for reaction!
