The FBI and U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration warned that cars are “increasingly vulnerable” to hacking, Fortune reports.

“The FBI and NHTSA are warning the general public and manufacturers – of vehicles, vehicle components, and aftermarket devices – to maintain awareness of potential issues and cybersecurity threats related to connected vehicle technologies in modern vehicles,” the agencies said in the bulletin.

Some car companies are beginning to use software that could be hacked. General Motors, for example, issued a security update after realizing that hackers could start the engine or unlock the doors of a Chevrolet Volt.

BMW also fixed a security flaw that could have allowed hackers to remotely open the doors.

“While not all hacking incidents may result in a risk to safety – such as an attacker taking control of a vehicle – it is important that consumers take appropriate steps to minimize risk,” the FBI bulletin said Thursday.

Despite Recent Mishaps, Secret Service Teaches Obama Daughter to Drive

The Secret Service had a recent mishap behind the wheel at the White House, but that hasn’t stopped the agency from teaching President Obama’s oldest daughter how to drive, The New York Daily News reports. 

“The Secret Service (taught her) actually, because they wouldn’t let me in the car with her,” the First Lady told television host Rachel Ray in an interview airing Thursday.

To get a true sense of the road, 16-year-old Malia has driven outside White House grounds, but never without security.

The president said the driving lessons give Malia “a sense of normalcy.”

“My kids have got to learn how to live in the world like normal kids,” Obama said.

FBI Offers $5,000 Reward in Search for High-Powered Guns Stolen from Agent’s Car

The FBI is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of two high-powered weapons and body armor from an FBI agent’s car in North Carolina, WSOCTV.com reports.

The shotgun and rifle were stolen from the agent’s car sometime between midnight and 8 a.m. Monday in the Hunter Oaks neighborhood.

The agent was permitted to keep his weapons in his car because he is part of a special response team that must be ready to respond around-the-clock.

It’s still unclear how the vehicle was broken into.

“No windows were broken,” said John Strong, who is the special agent in charge of the Charlotte Division. “The weapons were in individual canvas bags and locked in the trunk, as required by policy.”

 

Government Must Get Warrant for GPS for Car, Appeals Court Rules

By Andrea Peterson
Washington Post

WASHINGTON — A federal appeals court in Philadelphia ruled Tuesday that the government must obtain a warrant to attach a GPS unit to a car.

The case involved alleged pharmacy burglaries in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland: the authorities suspected a trio of brothers and slapped a magnetic GPS unit to one of their vehicles after consulting the U.S. Attorney’s office — but without obtaining a warrant. Using the evidence gathered from the device, the vehicle was tracked to a recently burglarized RiteAid. Police stopped the brothers shortly afterward, and a search allegedly revealed items from the RiteAid.

In the resulting case, U.S. v. Katzin, the brothers argued that the evidence obtained as a result of the GPS unit should be inadmissible because the police had not obtained a warrant.

AP reported that Cameron Undrae Eatmon, 19, is charged with breaking into the car n June 6, and stealing a submachine gun, an assault rifle, a shotgun and other equipment.
