Cars Hacked through wireless tire Sensors

Cars hacked through wireless tire sensors

Which makes this even worse.

Car hacks could turn commutes into a scene from Speed

Re: Cars Hacked through wireless tire Sensors

Yah, plus tire rotations would be a lot cheaper, lol.

Seriously though, as scary and frightening as it is, it really isn't surprising. Every new piece of technology involving some type of computer and access to one will eventually be cracked by some ******* in his mom's basement who's bored with life.

That's why I say the new era of war will be fought through computers...terrorists/countries attacking grids, banks, national security databases, etc.

Re: Cars Hacked through wireless tire Sensors

That's scary but I don't think the average crook is going to use high tech equipment that costs about 1500 dollars. Fortunately the Mustang is one of the least stolen cars. I do, however, agree with Sonicpony that terrorism, and crime for that matter, is going to evolve to using the internet, etc. Thank goodness we train people to secure and defend the virtual world as we do our land.

Re: Cars Hacked through wireless tire Sensors

All this **** is is laziness by the part of the manufactures. They can encrypt that **** on the most basic levels so it isn't broadcast to everyone but they don't because that would take someone an extra day of pay time to code it.

You have to be a complete idiot to design anything wireless today, especially involving vehicles, without making it a secure communication.

It is laziness. Pure and simple.

Now that I think about it even the cheapest garage door opener's having rolling codes. Just wait someone will sue them. I really don't think the average criminal is going to spend the time or money to hack the system.

I agree, this past month my car was broken into by someone using a Code Reader and copied my factory unlock/lock button freq. That night 8 other cars were hit the same way, in all the same things were taken...every single quarter that was kept in with the change in the center where we all keep our change. Three nights ago, my mothers and brother in law's car were hit, same thing. And all because encrypting might have cost the manufacturer a half hour to say "have the car have a Rolling Code Algorithm". Now I have to send more $ to get a Viper Alarm...at least they had the common sense to have an alarm with a Rolling Code Algorithm so that your frequency can't be copied!

There was someone in my town with a universal garage door opener going around with a van jacking the stuff from peoples garages. He got caught but he hit like 10 people before he did. They just need to do those encryptions on everything, but it is only a matter of time until those are broken. You can have anything, it just depends on how bad you want it.

Re: Cars Hacked through wireless tire Sensors

Do you really think the car companies give a ****? NO. Not until someone gets killed and it can be proven that's what caused it.
