Chevy Corvette hackable by OBD-II port -

The latest car model who happens to be hackable is the Chevrolet Corvette. He is able to do so by plugging a device into the OBD-II port inside the car that is when hackers are able to obtain information such as diagnostic information designed for mechanical and driving information for insurance companies.

There is some research to discover security vulnerabilities cars by plugging a dongle on the OBD-II port of the car. Cyber ​​security engineers Argus Cyber ​​Security developed remote control that involves all the functions that can be accessed from the OBD-II port and named as Zubie. Digital Bond Labs, on the other hand, found security vulnerability via dongle is so popular with 2 million Progressive Insurance clients. Stefan Savage, Cal-San Diego teacher who is involved in the research said they acquired some of these things (dongles as mentioned above), the disassembled, and along the way, found that they had a whole lot of security gaps. The study was presented at the Conference on Security unisex recently.

One of the methods is hackable that hackers will send SMS messages from the smartphone to the key that is plugged into the OBD-II port of the car which then messages will be able to access CAN bus, a network that is able to connect different electronic control units that will be able to control vehicle functions. As the message consists of command to stop the car, so when the driver presses the pedal, the car will not accelerate.

General Motors responded to the question by reminding customers to be more careful at any dongle that is plugged into the OBD-II port.
