Chrysler Calls 7800 SUVs Back Because Of Vulnerability

Chrysler has in the United States 7800 SUVs because of a vulnerability in the radios recalled. Using the vulnerability, an attacker can remotely the system "manipulate," the carmaker. Recently, scientists show how remote a Jeep could partially control.

Chrysler says it has already taken measures to prevent such attacks. Through these measures will be blocked access to certain vehicle systems. For this, customers or dealers do not have to do anything. The vulnerability which the 7800 SUVs are now being recalled is different from the problem that the two researchers demonstrated in July and which the carmaker 1.4 million vehicles called back.

As with the recall in this case goes to a voluntary recall. The problem is with Jeep Renegade SUVs of 2015 with a 6.5-inch touchscreen. Customers receive a USB stick which they can update the car software itself. Another option is to download the software or go through the dealer, who will perform the installation. For this purpose, no fee will be charged.

In the press release Chrysler also announced that it is not aware of any accidents or complaints were the result of attacks on the vulnerability. Below is a picture of the USB key that was sent recently to American car owners to patch the previously discovered vulnerability in Chrysler cars. An action where security experts much criticism had on.
