The IOActive researchers are at it again. In 2013, they demonstrated how you could hack a car with physical access. However, this year they found the holy grail of car hacks—a remote zero day flaw that allows them to control a car over its cellular network. Watch today’s video to learn what you should do if you have a Fiat Chrysler vehicle with a Uconnect system.

Hi Corey, It appears that you posted the video twice rather than giving the direct link. no biggie just wanted to let you know.

Ben, thanks for pointing that out. I think it is a very recent change in WordPress functionality. Previous, to embed a YouTube video you include a special “youtube=” tag. If you pasted a link, and then included a “hyperlink” to the same URL (so the URL was clickable) it’d just show a clickable link. Now when I do that, it changes to an embedded video, as though I had used the “youtube=” tag. I have edited the blog post so you can now see the direct YouTube link, but the problem is I can’t make it a “clickable” link any longer, or else WordPress will just embed,
Anyway, thanks for letting me know. I mostly include that link for the folks that get this as an email, and don’t actual see the embedded video in their email.
I wondered if that’s what had happened, you’d think there’d still be an option for a plain URL link. Have a great day, thanks for the updates. Keep them coming!
