As new vehicles have more and more functions with interfaces to the outside, there are more and more accesses for hackers and so an increasing probability for cyberattacks. The vehicles can be hacked e.g. via WLAN, Bluetooth or apps. There are many dangers that can arise from retrieving the GPS position to manipulating the vehicle systems, which can have serious consequences for the passengers. That’s why security is so important.

Here are just a few examples of automotive security disasters:
