what comes next? A worm infecting a canbus?

Car hackers can kill brakes, engine, and more
Researchers have taken a look at the onboard systems of today's cars and found serious security problems
To hack the cars, they needed to learn about the Controller Area Network (CAN) system, mandated as a diagnostic tool for all U.S. cars built, starting in 2008. They developed a program called CarShark that listens in on CAN traffic as it's sent about the onboard network, and then built ways to add their own network packets.

Yeah it's pretty easy to foul up CAN signals as long as you know what ID you're targeting.... There should be tighter security in getting into the network; a CANbus system will always be simple to hack once you've gotten in; there's really not much to analyzing data you've extracted from a bus like that.
