Toyota Land Cruiser and RAV4 in danger. They can be hacked with Nokia 3310 in 10-15 seconds
Attackers have mastered a new way to steal cars – using … Nokia 3310. It turned out that some cars have a vulnerability that allows them to connect to the CAN bus through the wiring coming from the headlights. Moreover, the key control units of some Toyota vehicles (among them the Land Cruiser and RAV4), Lexus and Maserati are able to receive signals from the secondary units, which are imitated using old push-button phones like the Nokia 3310.
The task of a hijacker who has such a specially prepared push-button telephone in his hands is simplified as much as possible: you just need to connect to the peripheral wiring and send a signal from the phone – by pressing a couple of buttons on the mobile car, it will open the locks and remove all locks. You can even start the car without a key.
“The device does all the work for the thieves. All they need to do is unplug the two wires from it and plug it into the correct connectors on the side of the car.”, Ken Tindell, an expert in cybersecurity at Canis Labs, commented on the situation.
MSI Unveils Commercial 14 Laptop for the Enterprise Market: Security, Office Functions, and Environmental Care
MSI has unveiled a new laptop at Computex – Commercial 14. It is designed for the B2B market, has features for corporate security and remote work. In addition, it is partly made from recycled plastic.
The exact model (or models) of the processors that will be used in Commercial 14 are not named – it is only known that it will be the 13th generation Intel Core i7 chip. Screen diagonal – 14 inches, resolution – FHD + (1920 x 1200).
Among the features of the laptop, we can distinguish the presence of an NFC reader and an e-ID card slot. Thanks to them, an employee of the company will be able to enter the system by attaching (or inserting) his pass card to the computer. The available list of specifications says nothing about Windows Hello support, but above the screen you can see a couple of elements that look like an IR emitter and an IR sensor that can be used to unlock the system in the face.
The keyboard topcase is made from recycled materials (PCR) and over 90% of the packaging is made from recycled paper. This may attract companies claiming to follow a strategy of caring for the environment.
MSI also showcased the Mercedes-AMG Motorsport Stealth 16 performance laptop at Computex, a collaboration with Mercedes-AMG, as well as other models for gaming, work and creativity.
Microsoft has released a new version of Windows 11: a new widget panel, copying security codes, improved “Settings” and more
Microsoft has released a major functional update for the Windows 11 operating system. It brings an extensive list of innovations and improvements to various aspects of the system.
Windows 11 22H2 Moment 3 (KB5026446) is currently available as an optional update, but these changes will also be included in the mandatory Patch Tuesday in June.
One of the main features is the new look of the widget panel with three columns – with two columns for news and one for widgets. Microsoft has also included animated icons for widgets on the taskbar. Another big change is the ability to copy security codes from notifications, so if you use two-factor authentication and receive notifications via email (or SMS from your phone), you can immediately copy this code to your clipboard.
The Settings app now has a USB4 page where you can manage docking stations and connected devices. There’s also now a Presence Privacy Settings page that gives you more granular control over features like wake up your PC when approached or lock when you leave. There are also additional settings for brightness, touch keyboard. The Accounts page has also been updated to accurately display the available storage for all of a user’s OneDrive subscriptions.
In File Explorer, context menus now support access keys. Accessibility has also been improved, including support for live subtitles in more languages, as well as support for voice access in more English dialects.
Taskbar improvements include displaying VPN status, and in response to user feedback, there is now an option to display seconds on the clock on the taskbar. The update brings an extra layer of protection against phishing and insecure passwords, and adds support for Bluetooth Low Energy Audio.
This is not a complete list of changes that Windows 11 22H2 Moment 3 brings. There are also improvements that are less noticeable to users, as well as a number of bugs, crashes and shortcomings.
Telegram has a vulnerability that allows attackers to use the MacBook’s camera and microphone
Google engineer Dan Reva has discovered a vulnerability in Telegram for macOS that allows attackers to use the laptop’s camera and microphone.
The vulnerability allows to inject a dynamic library (Dylib) with a malicious exploit into Telegram on macOS. With it, attackers will be able to record video from a camera with sound and save the file to a hidden folder on a Mac. Moreover, video and audio recording will work even if the corresponding permissions are disabled.
This is possible because Telegram for macOS does not use Apple’s built-in Hardened Runtime security mechanism.
Reva reported this issue to the Telegram team in February 2022. But the developers did not get in touch and still have not eliminated the vulnerability.
