3/14/19 Smart Car Alarms Vulnerable to Remote Hijacking | AT&T ThreatTraq


Recommended Posts



Aftermarket car alarm systems developed by Pandora and Viper have been found to be vulnerable to remote exploitation, enabling potential attackers to hijack the vehicles they're installed on and to spy on their owners.

The exploitable software flaws were found in the smartphone apps used to control the alarm systems developed by Pandora and Viper (known as Clifford in the UK), two of the most popular smart car alarms worldwide.

Just taking into account the claims made by Viper on the website of the SmartStart alarm system designed to help customers "Start, Control, and Locate" their cars from "virtually anywhere," the smartphone application has already been downloaded over 3,000,000 times.
