Ever since Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek hacked a Jeep remotely, researchers (and presumably criminals) have been looking into automotive vulnerabilities. Last week, a researcher from Trend Micro added to the automotive security issues by sharing an vulnerability with a car’s controller area network (CAN). In a nutshell, the researcher found a denial of service (DoS) vulnerability in this network that could allow an attacker to potentially shut down critical components in your car. Watch my quick summary below to learn more, and check out Trend Micro’s full video for the technical details.
Show Note: I will be in vacation for the next few weeks, so won’t be able to post regular videos. We’ll return to our regular scheduling next Tuesday.
