Insecure locks again.  Is your precious Tesla safe - perhaps not.
___________________________________________________________________________________________
We have seen how vulnerable domestic home digital locks have proved to be.

Now the digital locks used by Teslas and many other models can be exploited.

The perils of forgetting to renew that necessary SSL.
___________________________________________________________________________________________
Last month Microsoft forgot to renew one of their SSLs, we hear from an insider!

It was insider.windows.com which expired.  This caused all sorts of issues for the provider, and is not the first time the department responsible for renewing the SSLs has been caught asleep on the job.  Read more: https://www.theregister.com/2022/06/10/microsoft_insider_certificate/

If you have SSLs, or other products with us, checking renewals is easy.  Login:
