Fiat Chrysler Recalls 1.4Mln Vehicles Following Jeep Hacking
17:52 GMT 24.07.2015 (Updated: 18:12 GMT 24.07.2015)
Fiat Chrysler issued a voluntary safety recall on 1.4 million cars on Friday after two hackers showed they were able to take control of a company vehicle.
WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The recall will update software that “insulates connected vehicles from remote manipulation,” Fiat Chrysler said in a statement.
The recall occurred after two hackers in a Wired magazine article remotely took control of a Jeep Cherokee, including the vehicle's air conditioning, braking and steering.
The hacking comes as more vehicles come with electronic technology, which analysts and industry fear could be used to remotely crash cars.
Fiat Chrysler said they had no other reports of vehicle hackings or injuries due to software exploitation.
