Toyota got hacked


Toyota Motor Corporation exposed 296,019 customer information after an access key was publicly available on GitHub for almost five years. OMG! For five years? This is crazy! Toyota T-Connect is the automaker’s official connectivity app that allows owners of Toyota cars to link their smartphone with the vehicle’s infotainment system for phone calls, music, navigation, notifications integration, driving data, engine status, fuel consumption, and more. Toyota discovered recently that T-Connect site source code was mistakenly published on GitHub and contained an access key to the data server that stored customer email addresses and management numbers.
