Hakeris attālināti bloķē vairāk kā 100 auto

Wired.com raksta, ka vairākiem šoferīšiem kāds hakerītis sagādāja nelielu pārsteigumu — viņi nespēja piešķilt savu dzelzs draugus, jo tos bija nobloķējusi attālinātas vadības web-bāzēta imobilizācijas sistēma.

More than 100 drivers in Austin, Texas found their cars disabled or the horns honking out of control, after an intruder ran amok in a web-based vehicle-immobilization system normally used to get the attention of consumers delinquent in their auto payments.

Šādas sistēmas tiek lietotas, lai cīnītos ar nemaksātājiem, kas savas aizņemtības dēļ ir aizmirsuši samaksāt par auto kredītu.

The dealership used a system called Webtech Plus as an alternative to repossessing vehicles that haven’t been paid for. Operated by Cleveland-based Pay Technologies, the system lets car dealers install a small black box under vehicle dashboards that responds to commands issued through a central website, and relayed over a wireless pager network. The dealer can disable a car’s ignition system, or trigger the horn to begin honking, as a reminder that a payment is due.

Iedomājos Latvijas tipisko glaunā auto īpašnieku — celtnieks vai nekustamā īpašuma mākleris. Iesēžas savā darba zirgā — Porsche Cayenne vai sliktākā gadījumā Audi Q7 — startē, startē, bet nekā. Skujas bākā! Auto saka, ka neesi papildinājis savu e-talonu. Un viss. Ej uz banku ar kājām.

At first, the intruder targeted vehicles by searching on the names of specific customers. Then he discovered he could pull up a database of all 1,100 Auto Center customers whose cars were equipped with the device. He started going down the list in alphabetical order, vandalizing the records, disabling the cars and setting off the horns.
