Cybersecurity, can smart cars carry malware like pc?

Can smart cars carry malware like pc? A group of cybersecurity researchers is trying to insert a payload into vehicle systems, to test if it is possible to make it pass to user’s device. Will we see “vehicular” anti-viruses and firewalls in the future?

Smart cars are at risk of cyber-attacks, today more than ever. Many PoC confirmed that the new generation vehicles can be hacked, but now a group of cybersecurity researchers is going beyond. It’s trying to insert remotely a malware into the systems of the car to see if it is possible to make the payload pass to the user’s device, as soon as it automatically connects with the vehicle via Bluetooth. if the experiment were successful, it would confirm that smart cars – like all PCs – are at risk of being infected and in turn infecting their owners. Moreover, today there are no solutions to solve the problem. So, will we see “vehicular” anti-viruses and firewalls in the next future?
