Description 

High-tech thieves are hacking into key fobs from newer cars and experts are advising about this practice becoming more common. As in the case of Jennifer Wilson, who paid $90,000 for a customize Dodge Charger and it got stolen four days after making a duplicate of her key fobs. Sam Hussein, from Metrotech Automotive in Dearborn speaks about how these methods are getting more sophisticated. In this case, Detroit police found a programmer of key fobs during a traffic stop, finding out that it is only necessary to reprogram the key signal to make the original stop working while they can carry out the theft more quickly and efficiently.

In recent months, the law enforcement authorities in Britain’s Thames region have collected several cases of thefts of Land Rover brand vehicles. According to their research, the method that thieves often use is to take advantage of the proximity of cars to their smart keys when the owner is at home. With this circumstance, they use equipment that “clones” the radio frequency of the key and repeats it with their own device, being able to open and take the all-terrain vehicle with the same ease as its rightful owners.

Description 

Researchers at the Technical University of Berlin discover a vulnerability in the Tegra ‘superprocessors’ that Nvidia, a well-known computer supplier, supplies to Tesla for the control and management of its semi-autonomous driving system ‘Autopilot’. As stated in their paper, these hackers altered the voltage of the current which feeds the processor, a very old attack method, thus obtaining, and unexpectedly, a special privilege of access to their software, not available to the public.

After contacting Nvidia itself, it acknowledged the existence of the vulnerability, the solution of which is already under development.

Description 

After the Covid-19 pandemic, millions of American drivers have been forced to renew their driver’s license, which had expired during confinements. Taking advantage of this need, because for many it constitutes their only valid identity document, several cybercriminals have developed a ‘phishing’ method by which, posing as the traffic authorities, they send victims an email with a link to a fake online renewal form.

The investigators suspect that, through this procedure, they have been able to steal the personal data, name, surname, addresses, phone numbers, of a large number of citizens.

Description 

The North American state of Massachusetts passes a law on the  Right to Repair Assets. Applied to vehicles marketed there, it obliges manufacturers to provide free access to the telematics data of their products, in order to facilitate repair tasks for software and electronic components. This would be achieved through a single open-source platform, available to all workshops, but also for potential cyberattacks made by crackers.

At the moment, there is an open dispute against this regulation in the state courts.
