According to Kenn Security Lab, these vulnerabilities exist in the five models BMW i series, BMW X series, BMW 3 series, BMW 5 series, BMW 7 series. The 14 vulnerability lists are shown below and these vulnerabilities also play music and media and Internet connectionInfotainmentUsed for system, tracking vehicle position, etc.TelematicsThe control unit (TCU), the central gateway module that controls the exchange of data between various devices in the car, has been confirmed in three places.
Eight of the reported vulnerabilities require some physical access, such as using a USB port, and it is said that it will not be affected unless it is intentionally crafted by a malicious person I will.
