Drive safely on the internet lane: how smart cars can leak your data

As “smart” is becoming the new standard for everything, malicious threat actors are quick to capitalize on the insecurity of IoT devices. Hackers getting into your computer and spying on you is not something new for the average internet user, but definitely an emerging threat in the world of cars. Given a relatively new car (2014) with an infotainment system completely decoupled from the car’s backbone (ignition, lights and such), we discovered sensitive personal information being stored completely in the clear. We were able to extract the call logs, text messages and phone agenda from all the connected mobile devices. More worryingly, the navigation system logs were left without any obfuscation, enabling a malicious attacker to track the position of the car in real time, when it’s near open wifi networks.
Presentation’s Co-Presenter is Gabriel Cirlig, Software Engineer at Ixia, a Keysight business.
