I am very far from a techno-geek so this may be a stupid query!
But as our home PC is regularly full of spam and viruses and got so slow we were advised to buy a new one - as well as having been 'hacked' for our bank accounts - I am wondering what will happen over time to the Tesla on-board on-line computers?
Could a vindictive hacker (or a 'jealous' competitor!) burrow their way into the cars' pc and immobilize all Teslas? Or make them perform badly and erratically.
That would be a serious problem and poor publicity - maybe all cars going 'on-line' are at risk. Sophisticated hackers seem to be able to circumvent any security systems!
