Another "Conspiracy" Confirmed: Your car can be hacked

By James Corbett

In today's Thought For The Day James discusses the confirmation of yet another "conspiracy theory," namely that cars can be remotely hacked and controlled. Michael Hastings, anyone? And let's not even mention airplanes. OK, let's...

Massive Vehicle Recall Follows Exposure of Hacker Threat

Massive Vehicle Recall Follows Exposure of Hacker Threat


By Kevin Samson

From top to bottom, it appears that our modern Internet-driven world filled with interconnected smart gadgets and modern computing applications is making us vulnerable to potentially life-changing hacks.

It previously has been proven that boats, planes, GPS-driven munitions, unmanned vehicles and even smart homes all can be taken over via remote control.

But nothing has received the level of attention as the common modern vehicle.

Most of us remember the "conspiracy theories" that took place after the death of journalist Michael Hastings when his vehicle showed serious anomalies as it finally slammed into a tree at 140 miles per hour. Now, in an unprecedented move, Fiat-Chrysler is voluntarily recalling 1.4 million vehicles after news broke from Wired Magazine that a Jeep Cherokee had been successfully demonstrated to be remotely hacked via the Internet.


The research covered what is called a "zero-day exploit" hack, which enabled a test vehicle to be fully hijacked simply from obtaining knowledge of the vehicle's IP address.  Wired writer, Andy Greenberg, described what happened next:
As the two hackers remotely toyed with the air-conditioning, radio, and windshield wipers, I mentally congratulated myself on my courage under pressure. That’s when they cut the transmission.
Immediately my accelerator stopped working. As I frantically pressed the pedal and watched the RPMs climb, the Jeep lost half its speed, then slowed to a crawl. This occurred just as I reached a long overpass, with no shoulder to offer an escape. The experiment had ceased to be fun. (Source)
Not fun at all.

The article went on to speculate that perhaps as many as 471,000 vehicles might be similarly exposed. However, 1.4 million is an astonishing number - and of course comes from just one automaker.

In a press release, Fiat-Chrysler admits that "vehicles equipped with 8.4-inch touchscreens among the following populations" should be brought in for a security upgrade:

2013-2015 MY Dodge Viper specialty vehicles
2013-2015 Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups
2013-2015 Ram 3500, 4500, 5500 Chassis Cabs
2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Cherokee SUVs
2014-2015 Dodge Durango SUVs
2015 MY Chrysler 200, Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans
2015 Dodge Challenger sports coupes

...customers may visit http://www.driveuconnect.com/software-update/ to input their Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) and determine if their vehicles are included in the recall.
Read full press release HERE
While it is commendable for such quick action to be taken, it remains to be seen how other automakers will respond, and whether or not long-term confidence will be shaken in the marriage between high-tech computing and vehicles.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/07/31/us-fiat-chrysler-hacking-regulator-idUSKCN0Q525U20150731

The cybersecurity issues that led Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV to recall 1.4 million vehicles this month could pose a problem for cars and trucks from other automakers, the top U.S. auto safety regulator said on Friday.

“The supplier didn’t just supply radios to Chrysler but to a lot of other manufacturers," Rosekind told reporters. "A lot of our work now is trying to find out how broad the vulnerability could be."

Intel pledges to fight car-hacking
14 September 2015
, by Priya Anand (MarketWatch)
http://www.marketwatch.com/story/intel-pledges-to-fight-car-hacking-2015-09-14

Intel is trying to become a leader in the effort to keep cars safe from hackers.

The company announced Monday that it will form an Automotive Security Review Board, which will be composed of researchers who will test car security and recommend ways manufacturers can design safer vehicles.

The security — or lack thereof — of cars connected to the Internet has come to the forefront in recent months as researchers proved they could commandeer a Jeep Cherokee and manipulate its transmission and brakes from more than 10 miles away earlier this summer, prompting Jeep-maker Fiat Chrysler to recall more than 1 million vehicles.

“The reality is, we’re implementing so much more functionality in automobiles that it delivers great value, but it also exposes more attack surfaces,” says Lorie Wigle, general manager for “Internet of Things” security at Intel.

She says the company’s car products, including processors and infotainment systems, already include built-in security.

Nearly all cars could be vulnerable to hacks, according to a report published by Sen. Ed Markey’s (D-Mass.) office in February.

Intel also released a set of “best practices” for the car industry, saying car makers should provide ongoing security updates to vehicles, similar to how computers, phones and apps offer patches, and warned that criminals could attack cars and disrupt traffic for financial or political gain.

“Computer attacks are now a clear and present danger for car users, dealers, manufacturers and suppliers,” the Intel white paper says.

“Computer security joins reliability and safety as a cornerstone for consumer confidence and continued success in the automotive industry.”

Tesla unveils autopilot system, but don't let go of the wheel

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/10/15/us-tesla-autopilot-idUSKCN0S82SW20151015

Excerpt:

Newer Tesla Motors Model S sedans will be able to steer and park themselves under certain conditions starting Thursday, the carmaker said, although Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk cautioned that drivers should keep holding the steering wheel.

New "autopilot" features, designed for cars built after September 2014, will be available for customers in the United States, Tesla said. European and Asian owners must wait another week.

Tesla will provide the features through an over-the-air upgrade.

Musk cautioned that autopilot functionality was in beta mode and full "hands-off" driving was not recommended.

Hong Kong regulators took the rare step of blocking semi-autonomous driving technology from hitting the road, requiring Tesla Motors Inc. to remove features that let its cars steer and change lanes without driver intervention.

Guys let's not fool ourselves, everything can be hacked. Each program for which is make protection against hacking eventually be hacked. Let's stick to the simple stuff at least when the cars are concerned. If you hate to drive, driving bored you, so you need a huge LCD while you drive, to keep you amused, then gentlemen the car is not for you, sell your car and take a cab. Maybe I'm conservative about new technology, but I just need a strong engine and that's all for the full enjoyment ...

"Safe"?

We had a hybrid vehicle, where for example the "gear shift" did not physcialy connect to the transmission, rather it sent a signal to a computer, that did the changing from park, drive, etc.

The wife was driving, and the car decided to go from Drive to Park.  The dealer said something about voltage being off, and the computer going bad.  It was replaced, and the transmission declared "ok", but I never trusted the vehicle again, and there were other incidents of the computer refusing to do what the control said it should.

Not too much later, the vehicle was totaled in the accident.  Family fine, but I was relieved that the car was gone.

Unfortunately, pretty much every new vehicle is computer controlled to some extent.
