Jamie Court with Santa Monica-based Consumer Watchdog says new internet-connected systems make many new cars vulnerable.

”We are talking about the possibility of a 9/11-scale attack on America, and the car makers – remarkably – know it, but haven’t fixed it.”

He insists thousands of people could die if hackers are able to gain control of vehicle systems. Millions of internet-connected cars are hitting the market soon. Court thinks the new cars should have so-called kill switches that allow drivers to disconnect them from the internet.
