Cyberattacks on automobiles will increase sharply in 2016 due to the rapid increase in connected automobile hardware built without foundational security principles, suggests the McAfee Labs 2016 Threats Predictions report released earlier this week. The report said that even cars need “defense in depth, with layers of protection to reduce the risk and impact of a cyberattack.” Poorly secured driverless cars and smart highways will further expose drivers and passengers in 2017 and beyond, “likely resulting in lost lives,” the report contended.
