Automotive Zero-Day

Why Do Automotive Zero-Day Vulnerabilities Matter?

Unknown and Unpatched

Zero-day vulnerabilities are security flaws, gaps, bugs, or weaknesses that are unknown to the vendors of the affected components or systems and thus have not been fixed or patched.

Real and Impactful

The automotive industry is only just beginning to grasp the reality that exploitation of zero-day vulnerabilities can have a direct impact on vehicles and that keeping up with them is imperative.

Complex and Challenging

With the increasing complexity of the automotive ecosystem, zero-day vulnerabilities pose a formidable challenge for vehicle manufacturers (OEMs), suppliers, and stakeholders.

Automotive Zero-Day Vulnerability Database

The following is a list of automotive vulnerabilities discovered by researchers through Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) that are yet to be publicly disclosed. This initial list comprises zero-day vulnerabilities discovered at Pwn2Own Automotive, hosted by VicOne with the ZDI. For each vulnerability, the affected vendor has been contacted and is expected to develop a patch. While the vendors work on patches for these vulnerabilities, VicOne customers are protected from exploitation by virtual patches delivered ahead of public disclosure. These vulnerabilities are handled according to the ZDI Disclosure Policy. The zero-day identifier of a vulnerability refers to the candidate (CAN) number assigned to the vulnerability by the ZDI.
