That's a very good question. Someone ought to get in touch and point out that they're showing a car that can't be hacked in those ways, and possibly harming future values. If it's still showing when I get home this evening - and another owner or even Nissan haven't pointed out the error of their ways - I'll send them a little missive.

They don't know much about a 350z - the issues seems to be cloning off the ECU and those with Wifi.   I don't remember putting y 350z key in a protected pocket each night like I do with the 370z.

Yes, something that appears in the dictionary under the definition of "Old school" seems like an odd choice. This evening, I walked into the garage with the key in my pocket, and also asked the Zed about its wi-fi and TPMS, and it just sat there and looked blankly at me . . . thank heavens. :lol:

 

I sent a politely protesting message just before 7.00pm today, but thus far haven't had a reply.

Was just going to link to that article myself, had a mate send me a shortcut to it last night saying my cars at risk of being hacked. Had he read the article fully, no, just saw the pic and assumed. I too have sent a snotty but fact filled email to  them. :angry2:  :angry2:

So far, I have only ever read about vehicles being stolen using the relay method and ODB port key replication. Not on any of our cars may I add.

 

There are too many steps that would be needed to compromise any of the chips within the car.

 

  1. Hack the WIFI system to gain access
  2. Have knowledge of the chip in questions firmware vulnerabilities
  3. Bridge the WIFI and CAN systems to gain access to the chip
  4. inject malware into the chip taking advantage of the vulnerability.

I think that people are watching too many films. 

 

I mean, why hack the TPMS system when you can place a military grade tracker on the car to follow it....... which wont be so susceptible to GPS dropouts.

'Cos it won't fool the driver into stopping the car in the (mistaken) belief they've got a puncture . . .

Looks like some lazy web page compiler nicked used the image. It's also in a 2014 American article...

 

https://money.cnn.co...hack/index.html

 

No point trying to get them to change it - they'll be too lazy.

 

(this still doesn't explain why the Z was used in the first place).

 

Edit - it's here too - https://en.calameo.c...7563e130651ae0d- and it's a Shutterstock/CNN stock image, so it's clearly fake news.

I think most people would just ignore it until they stopped. But I can see your logic.

Like most opportunistic crimes, it only takes one or two successes out of a hundred (or more) attempts for it to become worthwhile.
