A widely accepted premise is that complex software frequently contains bugs that can be remotely exploited by attackers. When this software is on an electronic control unit (ECU) in a vehicle, exploitation of these bugs can have life or death consequences. Since software for vehicles is likely to proliferate and grow more complex in time, the number of exploitable vulnerabilities will increase. As a result, manufacturers are keenly aware of the need to quickly and efficiently deploy updates so that software vulnerabilities can be remedied as soon as possible.
