Automakers not doing enough to protect cars against cyber attacks, experts say
Monday - 8/20/2012, 8:46am EDT

Reuters reported cybersecurity firms are hard at work investigating the electronic bugs in vehicles.
The Department of Homeland Security helps the auto industry secure technology, but it would not tell the news wire how seriously it considers the risk that hackers could launch attacks on vehicles.
