Here's an article that is more detailed than most I've seen. I'm gonna wait for Fiat to send me a drive instead of using one of mine.

Fiat Chrysler: 1.4 million cars recalled, hacking concerns cited | BGR

As usual..... I am not surprised.

Re: Scary - Jeep Hacked!

I wonder what the timeline will be to receive that memstick with the "upgrade"on it?

I still want to know where to find the 'Sprint aircard' in my 14 JGC. I want to disable it.

Re: Scary - Jeep Hacked!

So what will they do? Stick a flash drive in the USB port and dump it in while you wait? Or is this going to be a long, drawn out PITA?

You can do it yourself in under 30 mins. If you're REALLY worried about your Jeep being hacked go to the site below and follow the instructions.

I'm not going to do anything. If I get a recall notice in the mail, I'll call my dealer and see just what's involved. If it's a 5 minute, in and out deal, I will take it in. Otherwise I'm not worried about it. I don't have "Auto Park", so my brakes and steering are not hooked up to U-Connect, any more than my pool pump is.

Also, I'm not convinced the neighborhood geek can do this at will to my, or anyone else's Jeep for that matter. As of now, this is all a bunch of smoke filled coffee house crap. Nothing to get worried about.

It's not a 5 min fix. The file needs to be downloaded and unzipped.
The .iso file inside of the zip needs to be placed in an empty USB flash drive. The drive then needs to be plugged into your USB port and the ignition placed in the run position without starting the car.
Like I said above the update can be completed in under 30 mins. It encompasses more than just a security patch so it'll benefit you to update.

...or you can wait for the recall and waste your time sitting at the dealer where they may require you to drop it off for the day or sit in the waiting room for an hour or two.

Re: Scary - Jeep Hacked!

I'm not that computer literate. If I ran into any type of issue I'd be stuck, and wind up at the dealer anyway. So if and when the time comes, I'll just let them do it from the get go. Then there will be a record of it being installed if any future issues should arise.

The part that people seem to have the most issues with is downloading and getting it onto the flash drive correctly. Since they are sending the flash drive all you really need to do is put your jeep in run mode and plug it in to theusb port it will ask if you want todo the update and you hit yes and then let it do its thing. Its not too bad but if you are going to dealer anyway for something else they will do it

That's what I plan to do... get it done the next time I'm in for an oil change. I drop the car off on my way to work so they have it all day anyway.

Yeah this one is getting a lot of press but im sure this is just the first of many and that is what they will become something to do the next time it is in for an oil change. I work with CEHs and unless you cut the cord theres always another way someone will get in. We dont patch windows once and say we are done lol what cars are evolving into not so different.

Yep, it was bound to happen sooner or later. While I don't doubt there's a vulnerability someone is bound to exploit, I do believe the media is sensationalizing this as they're apt to do with any story.

As long as FCA is being proactive about minimizing that vulnerability then I won't lose any sleep over it and will get the update when it's convenient. I'm pretty sure I'll probably have it in for an oil change long before any USB shows up in my mailbox.
