Remote Hacking into Keyless Cars

Another auto recall.  This times its Fiat Chrysler Automobiles that is recalling 1.4 vehicles because they are vulnerable to remote hacking.

Customers affected by the recall will get a USB device that they may use to upgrade their car’s software.  It provides additional security features to guard against remote manipulation.

The recalled vehicles are in these models:

2013-2015 MY Dodge Viper specialty vehicles

2013-2015 Ram 1500,2500 and 3500 pickups

2013-2015 Ram 3500, 4500, 5500 Chassis Cabs

2014-2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Cherokee SUVs

2014-2015 Dodge Durango SUVs

2015 MY Chrysler, Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger sedans

2015 Dodge Challenger sports coupes

In the meantime, an automotive security bill has been introduced in the Senate to set new digital security standards for cars and trucks. Its called the Security and Privacy in Your Car, or SPY Act.  The measure would direct NHTSA and the Federal Trade Commission to establish federal standards to secure cars and protect drivers’ privacy, as well as establish a rating system –or “cyber dashboard” — that informs consumers about how well the vehicle protects drivers’ security and privacy beyond those minimum standards.

I have the utmost respect for Rip Andrews and the lawyers at MRB Law. They took a case that others would have stayed clear of because the issue of state immunity was involved. Through determination and unwavering commitment they were able to a find resolution to an extremely difficult matter.

"They...brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict ."
These lawyers took a complicated issue, revealed the truth in a way 12 jurors unfamiliar with the topic could understand, and brought justice to my family through a multi-million dollar verdict. They were able to relate my “invisible” medical condition to the jury better than I can to my own friends. And because of that, the jury hugged me and cried with me when it was all over. That meant more to me than any amount of money.
