    Call me paranoid, but I do not want my OBD-2 port connected to WIFI.
    I prefer using a laptop and a dedicated hardware port device like the Car Code.

    Article on OBD-2 related security issues

    The referenced academic paper

    An academic paper on securing vehicle systems


    For now, real-world attacks are limited to using electromagnetic interference to cause malfunctions unless someone has access to your OBD port. Plug in a wireless access device, and someone might not need physical access to that port any more.

    Think about it. Your throttle, brakes, and other systems are under computer control--a computer you trust to do what you tell it to do. The threat of a malicious third party attack or an unfortunate malfunction due to interference is a small risk now, but worth considering.
