Security experts penetrate remote moving car and they contro




Veterans researchers in the field of e-Security showed how they were able to exploit the Internet to extinguish a car engine during its flight, rising to a sharp controversy over cars and trucks connected to the Internet, which has become their number is constantly increasing safety.

And use the former Buccaneer US national security and the current employee in the company Twitter Agency, Charlie Miller, in cooperation with the security researcher with the company “any or active” IOActive, Chris Valasek, “U Connect” Uconnect feature to connect remotely to a Fiat Chrysler to penetrate a car driving system on a highway and led a reporter to technology news site

In the control test, the researchers managed to run a Jeep Cherokee Radio and activate other non-core benefits before rewriting the code built-in entertainment system devices to issue orders through the internal network to steer the car, and the brakes and the engine.

The Reuters news agency quoted Miller as saying, “There are hundreds of thousands of cars negotiable penetration going on the road now.”

For its part, Fiat Chrysler has released a fix for the security hole that enabled the researchers to penetrate its cars. She said, “unchanged if smart phones or tablet computers, vehicles may require software updates to improve the security protection to reduce potential risks to get unauthorized and illegal systems to the car.”

For years, both Miller and Valasek is working to verify the safety car, and were those who warned that piracy is inevitable after all. The academic team, said earlier that he broke a moving vehicle from a distance but did not say how or name of the manufacturer.

The researchers Alomnaan plans to launch a research paper in the security conference “Def Con” Dev Con next month include the code for remote access, and that will not work on cars that have been updated.
