    In the near future, even your car engine will not be spared as these malevolent codes spread to a far wider range of devices.

    A survey published by IBM Security Intelligence Services last week paints a picture of rampant, albeit controllable, security dangers."

    I guess the car people could stop this by not making them RF programmable. That way you'd have to plug something into it.
    Mechanics would be the only people you'd trust to go plugging crap into your car. And they would have no incentive to cause harm........ wait just as I was typing that I realized they would have incentive, if they could just make it run normally for 6 months or so and then the rough idle and stalling can begin.
