WASHINGTON and NEW YORK and LONDON, July 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Chrysler's latest recall of 14 million vehicles due to remote hijack vulnerability is a simple reminder that all companies need to keep up with computer security and car standards. MarketResearch.com offers users access to many reports in both these industries.
The recent software vulnerability in the Chrysler cars allowed hackers to wirelessly take over vehicle steering, transmission, and breaks. The exposure led to a massive recall of 1.4 million Jeeps, Dodge trucks, SUVs, and other Dodge and Chrysler cars.
Chrysler was unable to fix the software flaw over the air, so current vehicle owners have three options to fix their cars. They can either: download the security update onto a flash drive and manually upload; drive to a car dealership and have the update installed; or, Chrysler is offering to mail out USB sticks to the owners with the update.
It's estimated that between 2015 and 2019 the connected car market in the U.S. will grow at a CAGR of 28.47%. With this expected growth, all car manufacturers need to be aware of the security measures they will need to take in order to avoid potential hackers.
