https://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/ho ... r-AAZntcCResearchers have discovered a vulnerability in Honda vehicles that could allow hackers to unlock doors and start the cars remotely. The security flaw has been named “RollingPWN,” and it affects all Honda models released between 2012 and 2022, according to the researchers.
Each button press sends a new code from the key fob to the car, which should (theoretically) render old codes unusable. But Kevin2600 found that it’s possible to roll back these codes, retrieve an old one and reuse it to unlock the doors and start the car from a distance of up to 98 feet. The exploit is also undetectable, leaving no trace after being used.
The team suggests a solution requires a recall of all affected vehicles, but given how many Hondas use rolling codes, that doesn’t seem feasible.
I actually got a Faraday bag on Amazon for my keyfob, but I don't think that would prevent this hack, which depends on the culprit just being within range to pick up your wireless keyfob signal when you lock your car and walk away. Any ideas?
