Some Mazda cars could reportedly be hacked, thanks to several vulnerabilities spotted by security experts, which would allow hackers to launch automatic attacks just by inserting a USB drive into a car’s dashboard. The bugs were first discovered three years ago by users of the Mazda3Revolution forum, who have since then, been “hacking” the cars to customise the vehicles’ infotainment systems and install new apps, BleepingComputer reported. The hacking technique was brought to light by Bugcrowd application security engineer Jay Turla, who put together a project to automate Mazda car hacks.
