Report: Connectivity Leaves Vehicles Vulnerable to Hacks

Automotive News reports Upstream Security said in its 2021 Global Automotive Cybersecurity Report that connected vehicle technology “leaves vulnerabilities and increases opportunities for hackers.” In the report, which was released Tuesday, Upstream Security said, “Traditional forms of cyber threats like ransomware, as well as more automotive-specific threats targeting telematics services, vehicle components, and the vehicles themselves, contributed to the recent increase in the number of cyberattacks targeting the automotive industry.” Upstream Security said that the “most common attack vectors – areas through which hackers gain access – include servers, keyless entry systems or key fobs, mobile apps, onboard diagnostics ports, and infotainment.” Automotive News adds that “autonomous vehicles are particularly vulnerable to hacks, but so are electric vehicles, as they are controlled mostly by electronic devices embedded within susceptible networks.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
