Chrysler line of vehicles can be hacked. Update your Firmware!

Article: Unhacking the hacked Jeep® SUV | FCA Corporate Blog

List of cars: Fiat Chrysler will recall vehicles over hacking worries

Update Site: https://www.driveuconnect.com/software-update/

I updated mine, in my garage, 2 days ago. Took <30 minutes.

Also to note; the updated files on the USB are easily readable. IE Standard file hierarchy. Which leaves me feeling this will happen again later down the road perhaps?

I'd feel better if it was encrypted. Or they should implement a system similar to Telsa and just push updates over night to their vehicles.

Can't tune our cars, but you sure can make them crash via laptop! Smh...

Still happy with her, no matter what though!

I tried the uConnect update site, it does not recognize my VIN. It is frustrating to download an update.

Same issue here. None of my Chrysler vehicles are recognized on the uConnect site or the owners site for dodge/Chrysler...

Weird...

Does your vehicle(s) fit the list of cars needing the update?

Well if you read the articles they were able to pretty much crash a jeep.


I'd say that's more serious than porn on your screen.

I use Firefox, and it was not compatible. Make sure your browser is compatible first. My VIN wasn't recognized until I switched to IE (or whatever it's called now in Windows 10). Then everything was fine to go.

I tried various browsers but what worked for me was Private Mode on IE 11.
