34: So you want to hack a car...

We love looking at how to hack things you didn't think would or could be hacked. Last time, it was an election. This time, it's cars.

We're joined by car hacking expert, Mark Adams, to help us navigate our way through these murky waters. From car jacking to car hacking, we take a deep dive into CANBus, the potential motivations for hacking a vehicle (or a fleet of vehicles), and the kind of damage that can be done. We cover everything from cyber extortion to good old-fashioned theft, and explore how uniquely vulnerable vehicles can truly be.

If you'd rather read – and get hands-on with CANBus – head over to our latest blog to learn more about how to hack a car.

About the Podcast

Cyber Humanity
The podcast taking cybersecurity personally
There's a lot of cool techy stuff going down in cybersecurity, and we love it. But you can't deny that a lot of the time we humans get forgotten. Our podcast takes a not-so-serious look at issues in security from a human point of view. Covering social engineering to hacker motivations and everything in between, we chat through security stories and themes and what they mean to us: the oft-neglected humans behind the screen. Apart from Kev, Kev is a cyborg.

These weekly podcasts come in two main flavors. We’re either ranting about themes close to the heart of us security types, or we’re discussing threats and vulnerabilities that have hit headlines – or slipped under the radar – in recent weeks.

Join Camille Mallon (tech advocate and keeper of the coloring pencils), Kev Breen (pro blue teamer, also known as 'Mr Nothing to CVE here...'), Emma Walker (), and other special guests as they wend their way through the murky world of Cyber Humanity.
