Vulnerabilities in major car brands

Meta’s EU Ad Practices Ruled Illegal, Twitter API Data Breach, Vulnerabilities in Major Car Brands

Play episode

Facebook has been ordered to pay a fine of $414m by EU regulators who ruled that the company had broken EU law by forcing users to accept personalized ads. The ruling could have a major impact on Facebook’s advertising business in the EU, which is one of the company’s largest markets, if it is required to make changes to its advertising practices.

A hacker has claimed to have the personal data of 400 million Twitter users for sale on the dark web. Attackers have also released the account details and email addresses of 235 million users for free. The information was exposed due to a Twitter API vulnerability shipped in June 2021 and later patched.

Security researchers have identified security vulnerabilities in the connected vehicle APIs of 16 major car manufacturers, including Acura, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Genesis, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Jaguar, Kia, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Porsche, Rolls Royce, and Toyota.
