Behind the scenes of carsharing
For users of car sharing services, the main risks are associated with possible account theft. In this case, the attacker will be able to freely dispose of the car, which at this point, allegedly is used by another person. Theft of an account can theoretically be carried out through the vulnerabilities and hidden features of mobile applications. In addition, by hacking an account, attackers can spy on the victim, steal items from the car’s cabin, or perform other illegal actions.
Since in this case, we are talking about the valuable property (car), personal and banking data, as well as about the life and health of drivers and passengers, the main task of the creator of the application for carsharing is to securely protect user accounts and data.
