We discover severe vulnerabilities in popular telematics systems, through which attackers can remotely replace their firmware with the malicious one and then launch attacks on the vehicles. We have confirmed these vulnerabilities through POC attacks on real vehicles. Moreover, we propose several approaches for fixing these vulnerabilities. We have informed the corresponding companies about the vulnerabilities and the fixing approaches with the help of HKCERT. In this talk, we first introduce the background knowledge of telematics and its attack surface. Then, we detail how to identify and exploit the vulnerability in two telematics systems. Moreover, we discuss how to fix this vulnerability.
