Mercedes- Benz App Glitch Displayed Other Users Account Information

Mercedes-Benz car owners have stated that the app they practiced to remotely determine, and discover, unlock and start their cars was presenting other people’s accounts and vehicle information.

It’s not unusual for modern vehicles these days to appear with an accompanying phone app. These apps connect to your car and allow you remotely locate them, lock or unlock them, and start or stop the engine. But as cars shift to internet-connected and pinned up to apps, security defects have provided researchers to remotely hijack or track vehicles.

One car owner stated that their app drew on data from several other accounts. He said that both he and a friend, who are both Mercedes buyers, had an identical car belonging to another customer, in their particular apps but all other account detail was different.

The car owners we discoursed stated they were capable to see the car’s current activity, including the places where it had recently moved, but they were helpless to trace the real-time location practicing the app’s feature.

When he communicated with Mercedes-Benz, a customer assistance representative advised him to “delete the app” until it occurred to be fixed.

The other car owner we talked to said he initiated the app and discovered it also dragged in someone else’s profile.

He told that he wasn’t sure if the app has revealed his private information to different customers. It’s not obvious how the security failure occurred or how extensive the problem was.

The information presented was cached data — not real-time entrance to the account, no monetary info was viewable nor was it permissible to interact with, or discover the live location of, the car linked with the account,” the spokesperson stated. “When we became informed of the issue, we took the system down, recognized the issue and fixed it.
