I think the device that allows people to do this is an EMP Generator, one which you can make easily.

What can be learned from this is that you shut off remote access to your vehicle if you're really concerned, that way, you eliminate your problem

So are they going to fix the problem though. This seems like a serious enough problem to recall the vehicles to get them fixed.
I'm not sure exactly what the method is for getting into these vehicles. An EMP attack on the system is a possibility but there's more investigation needed to confirm that, but it is a sure fire way to get into a vehicle.

For the fix, i'm not sure what they can do. It would be great if there is something they can add to the system to make it _____-proof

It doesn't seem to be that hard of an issue to deal with, even if it's temporary action that needs to be taken before something permanent comes along. For all we know some permanent fix could be in the works right now.

I also like not having to worry about my key lock cylinder giving up after years of use. Had a mid 90's lexus of mine that needed the lock cylinder changed after time time, soon after all went.

BUT of course that is with a really old vehicle, still something to think about in the long term
