BOSTON —Sen. Ed Markey called Monday for new standards after a report exposed how vulnerable the vehicle you drive every day may be to a hacker.

Markey questioned 16 automobile manufacturers last year about vehicle technologies such as Bluetooth and wireless internet access. The responses show they have not addressed the real possibilities of hacker infiltration into vehicle systems, Markey said.
