Cybersecurity researchers and Wired magazine last week showed that hackers could access the on-board computer of a Jeep Cherokee. That spurred a recall from Fiat Chrysler of 1.4 million vehicles to correct the vulnerabilities with a software update.
So should car owners be worried? According to three experts, not so much.
In fact, one of the researchers behind the hack told CNBC last week that he's more concerned about a different combination of wireless technology and automobiles.
"I'm more afraid of someone texting and driving and running into me than someone hacking my car—if that'll tell you anything," said Chris Valasek, director of vehicle security research at IOActive, during an interview with "Power Lunch" last week.
