Just after Chrysler and Nissan, GM rounds out the top 3 most hackable automakers.

Computer security researchers Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek concluded in the report due to be released later this week that the most hackable models out of 20 reviewed were Chrysler Group's 2014 Jeep Cherokee, Nissan Motor Co.'s 2014 Infiniti Q50 and General Motors' 2015 Cadillac Escalade.

make them simple and reduce the vulnerability. No thats too hard, of course ;)

Did you notice that the people doing the study never actually attempted to hack the cars? Some study. This is just fodder for journalists. Nothing to be too concerned with IMO.

they probably read some article on how just about any system can be hack and that it's just a matter of time till it happens if someone really wants to hack into it, so they know it's possible....their effort to sound relevant....MUST BE A SLOW NEWS DAY

Did you notice that the people doing the study are the same ones that hacked into a prius and escape last year? I think they might know a thing or two about one or two things no?
