    Is Your ?Smart? Jeep Cherokee Or Other Vehicle At Risk Of Being Remotely Hacked? | Techaeris

    this day and age of the smartphones, the Internet of Things, and tying more and more products into the Internet in an attempt to make them smarter and automate even more processes for us comes with a risk. Not a week goes by without an online service or website being hacked, but what about the physical products that reside in your house? If you own a Keurig, you may have heard of the security measures added to the Keurig 2.0 to ensure usage of official Keurig K-Cups only but that was quickly hacked.

    Imagine driving down the highway at 70mph or 110kph and all of a sudden your air conditioning starts blasting on full, the volume on your radio gets cranked to maximum while your wipers start up on high speed, and then your vehicle starts to lose power and slows to a grinding halt in the middle of traffic. Weve all seen movies where hackers are able to do all sorts of crazy things, and while this sounds like something out of the latest Mission Impossible movie or episode of 24, the events described here happened to Andy Greenberg, a writer over at WIRED.


    Charlie Miller & Chris Valasek have figured out how to remotely control a Jeep Cherokees systems.

    Working with Charlie Miller and Chris Valasek, a pair of hackers who have been focusing on taking advantage of zero-day exploits in vehicle software, Greenberg experienced all the events mentioned while driving down I-40 near St. Louis. For the past year, Miller and Valasek have been working specifically at targeting Chryslers newer Jeep Cherokees and were able to remotely bring Greenbergs Cherokee to a halt on the interstate. As Greenberg states, even though he expected it, it was still a harrowing experience:

    Though I hadnt touched the dashboard, the vents in the Jeep Cherokee started blasting cold air at the maximum setting, chilling the sweat on my back through the in-seat climate control system. Next the radio switched to the local hip hop station and began blaring Skee-lo at full volume. I spun the control knob left and hit the power button, to no avail. Then the windshield wipers turned on, and wiper fluid blurred the glass.
    Immediately my accelerator stopped working. As I frantically pressed the pedal and watched the RPMs climb, the Jeep lost half its speed, then slowed to a crawl. This occurred just as I reached a long overpass, with no shoulder to offer an escape. The experiment had ceased to be fun.
    At that point, the interstate began to slope upward, so the Jeep lost more momentum and barely crept forward. Cars lined up behind my bumper before passing me, honking. I could see an 18-wheeler approaching in my rearview mirror. I hoped its driver saw me, too, and could tell I was paralyzed on the highway.
    This isnt the first time that the pair have demonstrated their car hacking abilities to Greenberg. Back in 2013 they successfully demonstrated similar hacks on a Ford Escape and a Toyota Prius. In those cases however, the hackers PC had been connected to the onboard diagnostic port that technicians use to access the vehicles electronically controlled systems. Fast forward two years and the exploit can be handled remotely and wirelessly.

    Aside from being able to control the vehicle, Miller and Valasek can also track the Jeep Cherokees GPS, measure its speed, and mark its route on a map. No more need for a clandestine placing of a GPS receiver on a vehicle that is popular in many spy movies, the day has come when hackers and no doubt surveillance teams can hack into and track a vehicle using its native GPS system.

    These hacks are made possible due to the increasing push to make vehicles smart with both onboard entertainment systems and smartphone connectivity options. In Chryslers case, the Uconnect system in late 2013 models, all 2014 models, and early 2015 models can be accessed through the systems cellular connection once the vehicles IP address is discovered. After the connection is established, an updated firmware can be sent to the unit from just about anywhere and allow a malicious user to take control over the vehicle. While Miller and Valasek have only tested it fully on a Jeep Cherokee, they feel that their code can be easily modified to work on other Chrysler, Dodge, RAM, and Jeep vehicles with Uconnect systems.

    While the hack hasnt been tested on other vehicle makes and models, other manufacturers arent sitting idly by as Range Rover recently fixed a security flaw that allowed for remote unlocking of a vehicles doors, and researchers at the University of California in San Diego have demonstrated similar hacks in the past.

    The pair have been sharing their findings with Chrysler, and the company has just released an update which is supposed to fix the exploit and are recommending vehicle owners to contact their dealers to get the update to their Uconnect systems.

    Similar to a smartphone or tablet, vehicle software can require updates for improved security protection to reduce the potential risk of unauthorized and unlawful access to vehicle systems. Todays software security update, provided at no cost to customers, also includes Uconnect improvements introduced in the 2015 model year designed to enhance customer convenience and enjoyment of their vehicle. Customers can either download and install this particular update themselves or, if preferred, their dealer can complete this one-time update at no cost to customers.
    Check out the video below to see exactly what Greenberg experienced and hear Miller and Valasek speak about the exploit.


    What do you think about these recent demonstrations of vehicle hacks? Is the risk of being hacked worth the convenience of Bluetooth and other smartphone connectivity in your new vehicle? Let us know in the comments below, or on Google+, Twitter, or Facebook.

    BlackBerry just got another vote of confidence from a long-time user, the U.K. government. This month CESG, the U.K. governments national technical authority for information assurance, released updated security guidelines for government agencies and other security-conscious industries that want to use BlackBerry devices.

    Did you know...


    QNX imbedded deep in SAE Certification / Standards



    ISO 9001:2008

    The QNX management system is certified to the internationally recognized ISO 9001:2008 standard. ISO is firmly established as the globally implemented standard for providing assurance about the ability to satisfy customer requirements and enhance satisfaction. Auditors have evaluated and then certified the processes and systems governing the design and development of QNX software, as well as the provision of related support services.

    ISO is the world's leading developer of voluntary, consensus-based international standards. There are more than 16,500 current ISO standards and related documents that specify the requirements for state-of-the-art products, services, processes, materials and systems, and for good conformity assessment, managerial and organizational practice.

    ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) D

    The QNX OS for Automotive Safety is certified to ISO 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL D). ISO 26262 is an international standard adapted from IEC 61508 that defines functional safety for electronic systems, electrical systems, and software components in the automotive market. Meeting the ISO 26262 certification requirements involves an assessment by an independent certification body.

    IEC 62304 Software Life-Cycle for Medical Devices

    The QNX OS for Medical is compliant with the requirements of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard 62304 Software Life-Cycle for Medical Devices. IEC 62304 is an international standard that provides a framework of life cycle processes with activities and tasks, and incorporates risk management requirements as outlined in IEC 14971.

    IEC 61508 Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL) 3

    The QNX OS for Safety and QNX OS for Safety and Security are certified to meet the requirements of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standard 61508 Safety Integrity Level 3 (SIL3). IEC 61508 is an international standard for the functional safety of electronic systems, and offers a very high level of reliability and risk reduction when used in safety-critical systems for transportation, energy generation, process control, and other industries. Meeting the IEC 61508 requirements involves a systematic assessment by an independent certification body.

    Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4+

    The QNX OS for Security and QNX OS for Safety and Security are certified to meet the stringent requirements of the Common Criteria ISO/IEC 15408 Evaluation Assurance Level (EAL) 4+. The Target of Evaluation (TOE) includes not only the mature QNX Neutrino RTOS kernel, but also its multi-core (symmetric and bound multiprocessing) and secure partitioning technology. Certification to EAL 4+ validates that the security parameters claimed have been methodically tested by an independent lab and the certification authority (the Canadian Security Establishment (CSE)), and means that the QNX OS for Security will exceed the assurance requirements required for EAL4.

    The Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation is an international standard agreed to by the United States Government, Canada, and 23 other nations. It establishes standards for security functionality, security assurance, and security evaluation.

    POSIX PSE52 Realtime Controller 1003.13-2003

    The QNX Neutrino RTOS has been certified for conformance to the POSIX PSE52 Realtime Controller 1003.13-2003 System product standard, under the POSIX: Certified by the IEEE and The Open Group program. As a result, commercial customers and government agencies can choose QNX Neutrino with the assurance that it provides both the code portability and the realtime determinism needed for an array of military, networking, medical, and automotive systems. In addition to the functions covered in the PSE52 standard, QNX Neutrino supports many hundreds of other POSIX 1003.1 commands, utilities, and programming interfaces.

    POSIX PSE52 certification also confirms QNX Software Systems commitment to the software defined radio (SDR) market, including the U.S. militarys Joint Tactical Radio System Software (JTRS) SDR program. PSE52 serves as a cornerstone of the Software Communications Architecture (SCA), the interoperability standard mandated by JTRS.

    OpenGL ES

    QNX Software Systems is certified conformant to the OpenGL ES standard. OpenGL ES is a cross-platform API for full-function 2D and 3D graphics on embedded systems. QNX is also a contributing member of the Khronos Group, the industry consortium focused on the creation of open standard APIs to enable the authoring and playback of dynamic media on a wide variety of platforms and devices. QNX is active in the OpenGL ES and OpenVG projects, which help bring accelerated 3D and 2D graphics to in-car computing devices, casino gaming applications, industrial control systems, and a variety of other embedded platforms

    BlackBerry deploying professionals where necessary



    With acquisitions comes duplication.

    Layoffs can be an outcome in this activity where good options do not exist... the natural course of nature and business as in life is change.

    Regeneration and change at BlackBerry currently looks like the layoffs are being offset by QA Automation Engineer and others in what appears to be a large add for QNX, Global Sales leaders, Security Specialists (new ideas, like green shoots after a forest fire), global automotive engineering additions, California user interface experience developers and other adds, Power Engineers (more efficient devices and supporting clients in the power business), Patent Agent, Field Application Engineers...

    These new additions serve to build out and strengthen. These new additions will want fair pay for their input with the lure of a bonus that is expected in the technology sector hence the non dilutive Share Buy Back program.

    The JC road map is unfolding, the easy dismantling is over, the tough work is now ahead.

    There is an article from this morning ( bspence posted above) stating that BlackBerry would be a big winner should this bill pass...so maybe this gain is from that...

    Also, from what I seen in the past, the market/street rewards when they see cost cutting by a company (layoffs unfortunately) ...

    These might be the triggers for a positive trend going forward to the next ER...

    Graphs by the analysis gurus on here started to show this....maybe they can update and confirm the trend they see...

    Its not just the software it's the underlying data. They are one of the few companies with their own underlying data formerly known as Navteq. I believe they, TomTom and Google are the only ones with this kind of sophisticated data. That data has to be collected street by street and doesn't come cheap.

    BlackBerry deploying professionals where necessary



    With acquisitions comes duplication.

    Layoffs can be an outcome in this activity where good options do not exist... the natural course of nature and business as in life is change.

    Regeneration and change at BlackBerry currently looks like the layoffs are being offset by QA Automation Engineer and others in what appears to be a large add for QNX, Global Sales leaders, Security Specialists (new ideas, like green shoots after a forest fire), global automotive engineering additions, California user interface experience developers and other adds, Power Engineers (more efficient devices and supporting clients in the power business), Patent Agent, Field Application Engineers...

    These new additions serve to build out and strengthen. These new additions will want fair pay for their input with the lure of a bonus that is expected in the technology sector hence the non dilutive Share Buy Back program.

    The JC road map is unfolding, the easy dismantling is over, the tough work is now ahead.

    Thanks for the post. Just applied for a few positions in my area

    From the AAPL Earnings Call:
    http://blogs.marketwatch.com/thetell...e-watch-debut/

    This first quarter of Watch sales is showing a problem for Apple: By the only metric it provides, Watch sales look weak, but then it gets ahead of that with CFO interview saying that isn’t true. Would be easier to just report sales instead of obfuscating, then coming back and saying “It is not as it appears.”
    Reminds me of something...

    Chink in their armor!

    Didn't think iWatch would be a good seller for them (by their standards).... so nice to see...

    (can you imagine having to charge a "watch" daily!!! Yikes...)



    Did hear that the iPhone business makes up 70% of their revenue though...
