Not even pirated required - just Genuine Rootkit, Only Available On Sony CD's...

What I don't understand is why they don't tell us what model and year car it is. Shouldn't people who have this car know?

It goes to show that they will not stop till they end piracy, one way or another..
Uh, no, it's proof of concept and they used an MP3 as CDR is one of the medias the car would accept.

I doubt you could just stick a HDD or USB stick into the dash and load files like that.

I guess distributing infected files via P2P wouldn't be a viable solution? We're only talking MP3s here and I doubt any anti-virus has been updated to stop these.

I have an FM transmitter I use with my Galaxy S Phone the music stays on my phone, and my wife uses an I phone so I would say this is pretty fail if you ask me.
Oh my, so first of all, it's an unnamed car so you're just shooting into the wind. There are cars that have built in internet with internal WiFi so you can have internet while you're driving so it could have been one of them, you never know! Just because you don't use CDs anymore doesn't mean that no one does. If CDRs weren't selling, I think they would have been off the market a while ago!

Don't let them know about it though!

I could be wrong, but I'm almost positive this was discussed right after the release of these cars, funny to see it finally is possible.

Really though, for all the people who don't understand how this is dangerous? They're not going to unlock and steal a car using this. They'll shut down a car in the middle of the highway doing 80 MPH during rush hour and cause a huge accident shutting down a highway. That is why this is dangerous, it's not just the person who's car it is, but everyone around it.

Buncha horse$h1+. Each manufacturer writes their own little "operating system" for their cars. They're all different. Sometimes even within the same company, from car to car. Its not like its "windows compatible" lol. But even if they came up with some way to do it, go ahead. I'll reflash my car's computer with the factory software in 20 seconds and their little virus will be gone. Had to do it on an '01 volvo S80 for other reasons, I can do it again if need be. All modern cars are OBDII now so it will be easy as pie. And OBD3 is coming out fairly soon which will likely completely kill off any efforts to give a car a virus.

Bad troll?

Your cars 'computer' (car terminology) is not the one getting the 'virus'.

The '01 Volvo you refer to is completely irrelevant to anything that was discussed in this topic.

I remember reading about something to do with a auto dealership saying that a customer's flash drive had potentially given one of the systems in the car a "virus". The conclusion of the thread was that the car dealer were idiots, and it was not possible in any way. Guess it is.
