Default Tesla Hack



In a statement, Tesla said that the company had pushed an update to fix the bugs exposed by Keen Team within 10 days of receiving their alert.
I think this is key to the future of internet connected vehicles and the Internet of Things in general. Manufacturers need to have the resources and technology to respond quickly to roll out updates automatically before any vulnerabilities can be exploited.

All that connectivity is the biggest reason that would put me off buying Tesla not that I can afford one anyway. It's not just about hacking but also about privacy.
