Take the bus!
The whole remote control scenario makes me think of James Bond hurtling down a hill in a car with no brakes. But the more depressing scenario would be a car bomber....

Anyway, it's probably good that this is all coming out now so the techies can get a headstart on security.

Fresh targets
Fiction writers/futurists seems to agree we're heading toward driver-less cars, from the chase scenes in Minority Report to the more recent TV series Extant. And the advent of software-defined automobiles, not to mention networked ones, means hackers have a new target where they can really muck things up.

Hackable But Likely?
Even if possible to hack a Grand Cherokee, I doubt it's going to happen except for some curious Cherokee owner hacking his own SUV. The requirement to be within a few feet to send a signal is going to not encourage any widespread mayhem is my guess. Nonetheless, manufacturers do need to pay some attention to any security weakness in the systems.
