Submission + - We Will See Malware Attacks on Internet-Connected Cars, Expert Warns (ibtimes.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: The threat to internet-connected cars is no different to that of web browsers — only with much more serious consequences, warns API and data security expert.

Never had the worlds of motoring and technology been closer than when car manufacturers used the Consumer Electronics Show to announce a whole range of smart car features tapping into the Internet of Things, but rampant development could see major security concerns overlooked.

Speaking to IBTimes UK, Mark O'Neill, vice president of innovation at software company Axway, said: "I think we are going to see more malicious attacks [on connected vehicles]. If someone finds a vulnerability in an internet-enabled car you could have the same situation that you have now for browsers."
