BMW On-Board Computer Security Risks Identified

Chinese researchers have identified over a dozen potential security flaws involving the on-board computer systems in multiple BMW models including the 5,7 and X series vehicles. Roughly half of the security flaws require hackers to physically have access to your vehicle in order to exploit the vulnerabilities via a USB drive, but the remaining flaws can be accessed remotely. BMW has already begun to patch these flaws via wireless updates.

The security vulnerabilities don't seem to pose a Michael Hastings level of hacker access, but peace of mind is found knowing that BMW is diligently working to patch these flaws.
