Carmakers Work to Remain Step Ahead of Hackers

The New York Times reports hackers “seemingly can’t wait for the opportunity to commandeer vehicles.” In 2019, the automotive cybersecurity company Karamba Security “posted a fake vehicle electronic control unit online.” In under three days, 25,000 breach attempts “were made, and one succeeded.” A fleet of cars “could be commandeered and made to steer erratically, potentially causing a major accident.” Vehicle manufacturers “understand that a successful hack that caused death or destruction could be a major blow.” Gundbert Scherf, a McKinsey partner and an author of the report, said, “The incentive to prevent a giant malicious attack is huge.” Cybersecurity companies “must protect a vehicle in multiple ways.” Threats include “SIM cards carrying malicious code, faked over-the-air software updates, code sent from a smartphone to the vehicle, and vehicle sensors and cameras being tricked with wrong information.”

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...)
