BMW Patches App Flaw..

Fixing an issue that allowed hackers to open doors...

Quote:
BMW released a statement saying: “BMW Group is increasing the security of data transmission in its vehicles. This is the company’s response to reports from the German Automobile Association (ADAC). The motorist’s association had identified a potential security gap when data is transmitted. The BMW Group has already closed this gap with a new configuration.

“The experts from the ADAC had put the company through a strategic review as market leader in vehicle networking. This check revealed a potential security gap affecting the transmission path via the mobile phone network. BMW Group hardware was not impacted.”

At least they have already fixed the problem. The problems aren't so bad when they recognize them and fix them immediately.
