March 9 Mtg. Auto Hacks

John Kost introduced various tools allowing car enthusiasts to gain insight into modern automobiles. i.e.; - jacking into OBD-II (Diagnostics Port) and doing simple things like understanding fault codes and even resetting them thus avoiding a trip to a dealership - delving deeper into the typical ECU (Engine Control Unit) and demystifying things even further - disassembly of the ROM firmware and  and finding vulnerabilities - snooping the automotive CAN network - some of the threat vectors consumers face with regards to having their car hacked. John's 23 page slideshow will be made available on the club website; his presentation links are below.
