A selection of this week’s more interesting vulnerability disclosures and cyber security news.
This week, while there has been more large data troves being revealed for sale on the internet, I thought this one has gone under the radar:
- Wi-Fi hack can disable Mitsubishi Outlander’s anti-theft alarm white hats (The Register)
- Researchers Hack Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (SecurityWeek)
Vehicle hacking is still a concern even though many manufactures are trying, at one end of the spectrum to smother any published results to those that are responsible to actually address the problem. Along with this industry we have the whole IoT security nightmare, that any kind of risk to compromise is just an afterthought (if that) as its all about getting goods to consumers first.
