Chrysler Issues Recall To Prevent Hacking Of Its Car Software.

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Fiat Chrysler moved quickly to recall 1.4 million vehicles equipped with certain Internet and radio software that can be hacked by outsiders. “It’s one of those things that was kind of born on the web, and we learned about it quickly thereafter,” Ted Cole, general manager of Three Rivers Chrysler, told KDKA money editor Jon Delano on Friday. The ethical hackers, who shared their studies with the manufacturers, hacked into the car’s uConnect infotainment system, taking control of the car, shutting down brakes, and driving it into a ditch. “Probably a 10 or 15 minute actual process,” says Cole. “Of course, sometimes there’s waiting until we get to them, but it’s a very easy process.” While this recall involves certain models of Chrysler, Jeep, and Dodge, if hackers can use a cell phone to lock into the computer system of any vehicle, the manufacturers of all kinds will have to pay attention and get on top of this problem in the weeks and months ahead.
