Dongle bingle makes two MEELLION cars open to exploit

Can someone explain...

Why on earth is a tool for monitoring how and where you drive allowed to mess with the car's controls? Shouldn't the point of a monitoring tool be to watch only? If this device can also control the car then isn't that a simple get-out in court in case of an accident? Or do the companies supply a separate insurance policy to cover the damage that may be caused by the dongle talking control ROTM style?
