What about security? With so many interconnected vehicles accessible over the internet from different automakers, you know corners will be cut like the current wave of hackable petrol vehicles.

imagine a NotPetya infection/ransomware for autonomous vehicles: the doors lock, the vehicle speeds up to dangerous speeds and a screen or voice says “transfer 200 bitcoin here or we crash you into something/someone; you have 3 minutes.”.
