Zubie, An Aftermarket Device, Left Vehicle Vulnerable
Former members of an Israeli intelligence unit dedicated to thwarting cyber crimes announced Friday they had remotely hacked into a vehicle that contained an aftermarket device with a big security hole.
Today's new cars come equipped with dozens of microcomputers connected by a network and run everything from infotainment systems to the engine itself. Like any other computer system, the units inside our cars are vulnerable. Hackers can infiltrate these systems. Once they're inside, they can do anything from steal your data to control your car.
