Good question. Excellent topic for a future blog post, too. I am confident that the current anti-virus software developers will work with auto manufacturers -- just as they work with traditional desktop/laptop/mobile computer manufacturers and users. Why? There is much money to be made.

The point of my blog post is that developments and innovation are happening so quickly, that consumers need to understand the risks until protection methods are put into place.

McAfee recognizes the problem (and the market opportunity):
