Year 2020
Month February
Country South Africa
Description 

The vehicle recovery and monitoring company Tracker reported that it had been the victim of a cybercrime in the form of a ransomware attack. They quickly shut down their systems to prevent the virus from spreading, and began the investigation to clarify the facts. In addition to acknowledging the breach, they reported that no customer’s personal data had been left unprotected. Everything indicates that the attack was the work of an organized group of criminals, who encrypted Tracker’s information so that it could not be accessed.

Year 2020
Month February
Country United Kingdom
Description 

A hacker, known by the pseudonym ‘EvanConnect’, has created a device that can open the door of any vehicle that has a keyless entry system, keyless type, and has put it on sale for about 7,650 euros. This particular device is capable of emulating the signals of cars operating on frequencies between 22 and 40 khz. On the other hand, he claims to have another device for sale for about 10,200 euros with the ability to operate outside that signal band, making any vehicle of this type vulnerable. In a video he posted, he demonstrates that the device could open a parked Jeep and start it in a matter of seconds.

Headline 77 vulnerable OBD dongles discovered on Amazon
Year 2020
Month March
Country United States
Description 

Researchers conducted a comprehensive security analysis of 77 wireless OBD-II dongles available on Amazon in the U.S. In 2019 the results identified five different types of vulnerabilities, four of which were recently discovered. Each of the 77 dongles had at least two types of flaws. A dongle is any type of adapter or key that, in this case, plugs into a vehicle’s OBD-II socket to provide extra functionality. Those offered in e-commerce stores are usually combined with an app on the cell phone in such a way that they allow extra information to be obtained from the car, directly on the phone’s screen.

Two thieves use relay system to steal a carMar 2020Read More

Country Germany
Description 

The owner of a BMW M2 shared on his Reddit account the moment in which two thieves stole the car that was parked at the door of his house. The assailants used the signal amplification system to get hold of the vehicle in a short time and drive away in it; in fact, in a video that was disseminated, one of the criminals can be seen prowling around the house for just over a minute until they picked up the signal from the car’s remote control. And although they managed to open it and take it away, they abandoned it shortly afterwards, perhaps because they thought it was being tracked.
