EVERYONE RELAX - Your Jeep Will Not Be Hacked

Now that a billion people have seen the article and posted about it, lets make it 100% clear that the odds of your jeep being hacked are especially slim.

1) Because you need the Vehicle Uconnect IP address. Something of which isnt easy to come by

2) Theyve already released a fix to get eliminate (or atleast significantly reduce) the risk.

So breathe easy and everyone go back to enjoying the awesomeness that is the Grand Cherokee

A simple cell sniffer would get that address very quickly.

Being somewhat overblown, but worthy of serious thought, as it applies to pretty much every vehicle out there that offers wi-fi, cell service, etc.

Oh really? I strongly disagree.

In under 12 hours of research and implementing a script I can probably get the IP of every Uconnect online at the moment.

I'd say that's pretty easy and probably something that's already been done.

This is scary stuff and things that lots of us knew are feasible but tend to ignore.
