High-tech methods behind massive theft of Jeep, Dodge cars

I am not a big fan of the Internet of Things (IoT). It takes quite a bit of knowledge and skill to protect computers form malicious attacks. Companies like Symantec and McAfee make billions protecting computers and people are still hacked. My security software for websites is downloaded by thousands every week and websites still get hacked. It is natural that cars, baby monitors, routers and thermostats get hacked every day. Why would I want to open up my car to hackers? The software us not easily updateable. There is practically no defense against hackers. The first thing I would do with one of these cars is turn off the WiFi. If that wasn’t possible I’d unscrew the WiFi antenna. Better yet, buy a 1964 Chevy Malibu wagon with low mileage and not too much rust.

Houston police announced the arrest of two men accused of stealing about 30 Jeep and Dodge vehicles. Authorities say they did it by using a laptop and pirating software.

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.

Enjoy!
