They should be recalling cars NOW and fitting a new version. We now know its possible to crack so someone somewhere is working on it right now and they WILL release it in to the wild, when they do thousands of cars will be vulnerable. By releasing the exploit now VW would be forced in to fixing it, but they choose to cover it up and leave people vulnerable just so they don't lose money. I'm sure VW will already be planing Excuses and T&C modifications to cover themselves.

One could say the same in regard to publishing nefarious information about lots of hardware just browse you-tube for lock picking or getting into a hotel safe or through their card lock doors and you get the drift.Just because you make a lock system doesn't I think ,make it right that the security behind the device cannot be publicly posted.

It seems a bit criminal to release this kind of information out into the wild. I agree with the court on this one.
