We love looking at how to hack things you didn't think would or could be hacked. Last time, it was an election. This time, it's cars.
We're joined by car hacking expert, https://www.linkedin.com/in/cybermaggedon/ (Mark Adams), to help us navigate our way through these murky waters. From car jacking to car hacking, we take a deep dive into CANBus, the potential motivations for hacking a vehicle (or a fleet of vehicles), and the kind of damage that can be done. We cover everything from cyber extortion to good old-fashioned theft, and explore how uniquely vulnerable vehicles can truly be.
If you'd rather read – and get hands-on with CANBus – https://www.immersivelabs.com/resources/blog/introducing-your-vehicles-nervous-system-canbus/ (head over to our latest blog) to learn more about how to hack a car.
