Well imagine this scenario you're driving along and suddenly.
You're no longer controlling the car that's a scary scenario from some top security analysts who warned that as our cars become more sophisticated.
They also become more -- ball.
And even terrorists is that true Morgan -- cyber terrorism analysts and he's joining us now on.
Again one of our our favorite stories that -- that really concerned.
-- mortgage is this true I mean it is this something.
That we need to be concerned about.
Well look mix of the fact and fiction fact yes you can't take control of the car OnStar is an example and they work with law enforcement the stolen vehicle assessed.
They can actually locate your car law enforcement gets in behind it.
They send a signal to the car to start slowing it down and then it cruises off to the side of the road but in that scenario law enforcement saying control they blocked the road.
My concern is what happens when they not only just -- -- the car they -- the systems that control these cars or have access to them.
And then do these -- so.
Lot of people say that's farfetched but it you don't -- my examples on September 10 2001 we thought it was far fetched the flight four airplanes into a building never thought -- it happened so never say never.
That's a sobering -- -- just gonna add to this it has the attention of government.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration back in 2011.
Set up a new divisions and take a look at this.
And this -- hit the researchers from the University of Washington in the University of California San Diego.
Hacked into an ordinary mid priced late model sedan available to any consumer they analyzed unlocked car door -- They eavesdropped on conversations which is interesting considering the latest news and and -- Bluetooth right right they turned the engine on and off.
And -- compromise critical vehicle systems that this is the direction that cars are moving Morgan right they're becoming more computerized so what do we do is consumers.
The half go back to the horse and buggy.
I'm half a fact take longer to get -- -- what did you afternoon it's going to be again it's going to be.
Making sure you understand the risk that when you get a car how connected do you want that car that I mean there are costs -- they're called the connected car.
That are using four G and LTE to connect many -- -- you can stream movies to the vehicle while you were in progress.
Now the carmakers have gone to a lot of extent create security for example Ford in their seat system.
They use photography to encrypt some of their updates to make sure that nothing you know gets in their neck and neck and control the system.
But again we're -- everybody's thinking about all it can't happen -- that's far fetched but again look we're just at the very Mason beginning.
Of this in terms of what we can do and how we connect things and as these things become more connected your car is is loaded with maybe 7080 computers at a time.
Monitoring your emissions your climb a tree.
Your tire pressure things like that so again maybe it's maybe it's a short range -- maybe it's somebody controlling it from afar but the point about it is the more we -- we become a society.
The more vulnerabilities we have because guys that's just the Internet that's the way the networks work.
Wasn't using -- -- stories about cars that drive themselves right they can park themselves but just sit that we can bring this back to news that we can news it's a very interesting story.
But how can circulate maybe given the scale of one to 1010 being the most concerned about driving our -- right now on the road -- Is this something we need to be concerned about it is or something you can do right now or is it something that we just really need to be aware -- and it's it's it's a sign of the times if you well.
It's a sign of the times -- -- -- on a scale of one to ten it's a one and a half you know maybe in their there's only one car out there right now the Infiniti Q fifty that has a truce during by wire system that you could actually.
If you could get access could actually control the vehicle so.
Absent that vehicle.
You know I -- but it's one of the sings again -- -- I've talked so many times about these sayings you know we talked about Edwards note we've talked about all these things that people didn't think you -- do well.
It's something to monitor but it's something as a consumer to say I don't wanna go that direction and consumers can make sure it happens by voting with their -- -- I want this not that and that will try the carmakers create.
A safer car maybe not all the bells and whistles the one that -- You mention the -- in the -- but we had a few ideas we've got enough he'd ever 1968 Camaro.
And 1960 -- pollen may be in 1965 mustang you and have these problems right tigers are again.
-- getting me back I'll muscle -- -- -- 68 -- but I got a 2000 -- super sport the only thing electronic about that is the stereo system -- but I'm raising apparatus so far that belief is like showing some old cars -- dot com I think good opportunities that I'm seeing now you got to go back to that.
Old school rules -- on.
Paper that they actually the Kremlin went back to typewriters because of the NSA stuff so there -- go Morgan in his 2000 -- he's going to be just fine the rest about we should just pay attention.
Morgan thank -- is always great to see you.
