Mitsubishi Outlander hacked via mobile app by a British Security Firm


When you hear that someone hacked into a car, you might think that this is someone trying to get you scared. This should not be treated lighted since there are more and more cars being connected. Being able to hack into a car through a mobile app is increasing the chances of sneaking and taking off with the car. With the recent development, the British security firm believes that this is a serious vulnerability in the Mitsubishi Outlander Plug-in Hybrid.

Mitsubishi Outlander

Pen Test Partners LLP is the British security firm that discovered this weakens in the Mitsubishi Outlander. They found the method used to connect the car to the owner to be very interesting. Since most of the mobile apps use the internet as the medium through which the owner communicates to the car, Mitsubishi is offering a direct connection to the WIFI through a weak factory password and hackers can easily access the settings to the vehicle and manipulate the system or get away with the vehicle.

When the company was able to get into the vehicle’s network, they were able to alter the battery charge settings, manipulate the fiddle with the HVAC controls and also turned the headlights on. One of the most worrying activities was when they disabled the alarm system which is risky. Let’s say a criminal was outside the vehicle and they were able to do this, they will be able get in the car and probably get off in it.

It might be hard for one to get off in the car but the possibility of disabling the car alarm system is as easy as sniffing out a network. Until this issue is fixed, it is advised that you turn off the car’s WIFI or put it into sleep mode. This will make you lose the mobile access to the car but this will also keep off everyone else who might want to hack into your car’s system.

iPhone Siri Tips

Siri has been part of iPhone since the iPhone 4s, which is a long time ago when you think about it. Back then the feature was not as helpful as she misunderstood users half the time, resulting in not too many people using the option.

However, with the next devices and those that are sure to come shortly such as the iPhone 7, you will find Siri has become a lot more useful. Not only in finding things online for you but the feature now also allows you to control you mobile device when your hands are too busy.


Here you will find a few key features that Siri provides, which you might have known about, but there is definitely one or 2 that will be new and well worth a try.

Find your Phone

Siri has a new feature that allows you to access her options by just saying “Hey Siri.” This is very useful as you no longer need to press the home button while driving or when your hands are full to access the information you need.

This “Hey Siri” feature can also be useful when you have misplaced your phone. Simply stand in the centre of a room and say “Hey Siri” to have her respond and eventually find your phone. Apple might not have intended to include this feature, but it actually works really well and make things a lot easier when you in a hurry.

Text Friends without Typing

While driving, you can use the “hey Siri” feature and tell her to send a message to any one of your saved contacts. Furthermore, you can also tell her what to say in the text, which she will read back to you before sending. Receiving a text is just as easy as users are able to request that Siri reads the message and provide you with the options to reply instantly.


Not only can Siri be used as a PA, but you can also ask her to take you places. For example, saying “hey Siri, navigate to Greg” she will automatically access Greg in your contacts and get his address info if saved. She will then open maps and show you the quickest way to your location.

New Feature to Google’s My Account


My Account is a feature that was launched by Google to provide users with more options and features regarding their Google accounts. These additional features include security settings and privacy. Users also have the options to change the options for ads and much more.

To celebrate the success of the first year, users can now take advantage of additional options and security features. With these options and the huge selection of apps available, you will now be able to feel more secure while taking advantage of everything the web has to offer and know you are protected.
Find my Phone

We’ve all done it, go to a friend, coffee shop, movies or anywhere else where you might have left your phone behind, which is not the end of the world once you get it back. However, since most of us keep highly confidential personal information on our phones, for it to be stolen and placed in the wrong hands is just not something we can risk. In the U.S. alone there are millions of mobile devices stolen each year, which is why Google has added a Find my Phone option to the latest My Account features.

With this option, users will be able to lock their devices remotely, which does not allow anyone to access the information. The feature lets you dial your number in case someone has found it, or you can display a “call if found” number on the screen. The device can also be tracked to allow you to go searching a bit closer to its current location. Users can delete all media, sign out of accounts, and wipe the phone remotely in the case that it has been stolen.

The latest update will also provide users with new ways to access My Account as well as a new interface to make things much easier to reach. The app can be used on both iOS and Android devices, which simply adds to your current security choices on your device.

The company was instrumental is making shifting location easy through the Sling Technology, a software that allows viewers to stream T.V content via the internet directly through home boxes to P.C’s and mobile devices.

The Hopper allows its users to transfer anything they recorded to their mobile device and this has made. The Dish Network has released another option that permits recorded content to be viewed almost anywhere through a DVR hard disk drive. It permits viewers to transfer their content from a Hopper 2 or 3 to a unit that is portable. The cost is reasonable, set at $99 usd, and comes with a rechargeable battery that will allow for viewing of up to 100 hours of content.

One thing to note about this, is its small size. Dish Network made its name though the Sling Technology and it’s anytime use, but Dish deserves recognition for its accomplishments in making its devices smaller. They are not at all obtrusive and are sleek enough for most people to not be concerned taking it with them as they travel. Measuring on 2.5×2.5x.5, the one drawback is misplacing it.

The new device shares the same Red and Black casing, just as most of the Dish Network products to, but it is distinctive in relation to its overall size and also as it only comes with two ports, a mini output and a micro one. It includes two indication lights to identify when it is charging or in use.
