|Headline||Millions of cars with Bluetooth could be in danger|
Researchers from the Singapore University of Technology and Design released, with the codename BrackTooth, a list of 16 vulnerabilities affecting Bluetooth systems based on chips and made by a large number of suppliers such as Intel, Qualcomm or Texas Instruments. These chips are used to provide wireless functions to 1,400 different types of connected devices, among which are the multimedia systems of today’s vehicles.
Such vulnerabilities could allow an attacker to carry out remote actions such as, for example, stopping audio playback or stealing information on the device.
