OttoSec - Automotive Cyber-Security

 • Feb 28th, 2022:
    Israeli Cyber-Security researchers demonstrate a cyber attack - remotely take-over Tesla vehicles:

Mako: Remote attack against Tesla vehicles

Unfortunately this in not a new problem - and this keeps happening.
Fleets and companies should protect themselves from possible damage due to such attacks!

As soon as a hacker takes control of a device that is connected to the In-Vehicle (CANBUS) network, it is too late to prevent damage...
...Except with the solution OttoSec is developing and demonstrating!

OttoSec SOLUTION enables retrofitting existing fleets, targeting hundreds of millions of connected cars already on the roads.

    Check out this presentation by CANIS Automotive Labs at ASRG:

Demonstration of attacks on the CAN protocol

These are just a few examples of possible attacks against the CANBUS protocol.
Millions of vehicles currently on the road are vulnerable to similar threats!
Even new vehicles that integrate current 'Cyber-Security' technologies would still be vulnerable to this type of attacks!
OttoSec is developing an Effective and Practical SOLUTION for CANBUS protocol attacks.

    Jackware: A new type of ransomware could be 10 times as dangerous -

"Jackware hijacks the actual physical devices and machines that make modern life possible"

More people understand that Ransomware targets might include the Automotive segments -
"For instance, if malware disrupts an 'electronic control unit' (ECU) in a car,
it could cause the brakes to malfunction or prevent the engine from starting — effectively 'bricking' the car."

    First recall in which a car manufacturer announces to the public in Israel
    that there is a possibility that hackers take over the vehicle:

For the first time in Israel - car crash for fear of hacking

"Hackers can break into automotive systems through intrusion into radio and multimedia systems"
“The audio system has a certain vulnerability in its security that could allow unauthorized third parties to gain access to some of the vehicle’s control systems connected to the network.”
