Am I Safe from Car Hackers Using Malware?

Am I Safe from Car Hackers Using Malware?

by Dan Lowe, from OEM Hub , on 20.09.2016

After purchasing my car, I wondered if I was going to regret my decision. At the car dealer, as I sat in the driver’s seat, the aviator style dashboard, array of digital displays, and innovative auto-sensing enhancements beckoned me to investigate further. As I was driving the car, I marveled at the plush leather seats and quick moving digital numbers of the speedometer jumping as I depressed the accelerator – my senses came alive. For 16-years, I have been driving a basic car with a plain dashboard, simple needle style speedometer, and creature comforts such as a AM/FM radio with a tape cassette. In my old car, I used to change my oil, replace my spark plugs, or fiddle around with the engine. Now, new automobiles have gone way beyond my capabilities as a do-it-yourself car mechanic. I have to take my car to the shop every time a fix it code appears on the dashboard display. I feel poorer after every visit to the mechanic because the new car requires a technician with a computer to diagnose my vehicle’s warning notifications. read more

A flashlight is most valuable at night - The Romanian experience

by Bitdefender Security Specialists , on 05.03.2014

Asia could take a leaf from Romanian history, after the fall of communism there - the battle of crime and corruption versus democratic free enterprise. Now, there is a global battle between light and dark in IT - between cyber-criminals and secure business. This has recently taken a sinister turn, when governments have engaged in cyber warfare, using shady parties to generate viruses against political rivals. This is escalating the problem, where criminals are deemed ‘patriotic’ and creating sophisticated malware is practiced by both sides. It has raised the idea of offensive defense, i.e. attack the attackers. However, the Internet does not lend itself to such tactics, and passive defense remains the best way forward. read more
