For Trends with Benefits episode 95: August 11, 2016 we dive into reports that over 100 million Volkswagens are vulnerable to hackers. That’s basically every car they produced since 1995. Apparently the key-fobs used for the past two decades use encryption that can be easily broken with a $40 arduino board setup.
Also on today’s podcast: Rumors that the PS4 Neo may be officially unveiled September 7, and BMW unveils how Amazon’s Alexa will be available in it’s new smart cars.
Each week, we gather a round table of tech experts from the Digital Trends staff, along with the occasional celebrity guest, to discuss all things tech. Topics range from the big tech stories of the week to predicting the future, all while maintaining a somewhat civil decorum.
