Tesla Accelerates Security Fixes by Cooperating with Researchers
Tesla was able to quickly address a vulnerability in the software for one of its cars by cooperating with researchers who discovered the flaw. Even before the bug was known, Tesla implemented a “coordinated disclosure policy” to pay researchers for finding and submitting vulnerabilities. When researchers found a security hole in one of Tesla’s cars, Tesla quickly fixed the problem and publicly thanked the researchers by co-presenting with them at a conference. The company enjoyed praise by industry experts and the public for its strong pro-security stance.
