The auto industry has kept up with our need to feel connected to our devices by incorporating computer technology into cars that is similar to what we see on our phones and tablets.   It's a big seller to car and tech enthusiasts who want the newest features.  As much as we enjoy being connected, a statement released by the FBI last week acknowledged that this new technology in cars is accessible to hackers.
One of the most likely targets for hackers is a vehicle's cellular connection system, which includes Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections.  These third-party devices could generate a back-door for a hacker to get into the vehicle's electronic control units.

The electronic control units are the computers that control all of the vehicles functions, including the wireless functions. This allows hackers to remote access certain features of the vehicle. 

For example, a hacker may use an amplifier that increases the range of the signal receiver within the vehicle, which tells the car that the key is closer than it actually is, and could allow them access to unlock the vehicle's doors.
The likeliness of your car being hacked remains low for now, but you should be aware to stay ahead of the curve.

Experts recommend  that you keep your vehicle software up-to-date and check for recalls to prevent the known vulnerabilities. Do not modify the software of your vehicle. Be aware of who may have physical access to your vehicle to avoid hackers can gaining access to the vehicle's computer system. 
BCSI investigators are experienced in finding hackers. If you think you have been a victim of hacking, please contact our office and our investigators would be happy to assist you.  Call us today at 604-922-6572.
