    “While it is impossible to completely rule out anything in the security world, in my opinion, it would be highly unlikely for all the cars to be controlled for a longer period of time,” Engin Kirda, professor of computer science at Northeastern University, tells Inverse. “A good design would have a kill switch somewhere and would make sure that a scenario such as this would not be possible.”
