Kill Chain Podcast: Stealing Cars Through The Headlight
In this episode of the Kill Chain Podcast hosts Marcus Q discusses recent research by Dr. Ken Tindell of Canis Automotive Labs with Terry Reinert, offensive cyber warfare expert and CEO of Fleet Defender. This episode discusses the new evolution of car theft via CAN hacking devices.
Breaking into vehicles used to take a slim jim and a screwdriver but with technology like engine immobilizers thieves are getting more creative. In this episode of the Kill Chain podcast we discuss how these new tools can exploit the CAN bus of a vehicle through a CAN injection attack to disable the vehicle’s security ECUs. These technologies highlight the cybersecurity cat-and-mouse game between companies and hackers.
