Vulnerability Lab security researcher Benjamin Kunz Mejri released yesterday ConnectedDrive portal to the presence of two zero-day vulnerabilities, BMW in the past 5 months, not the two big vulnerabilities for repair.
Session vulnerability allows a user to access another user of the VIN—the vehicle identification code.
The VIN is for each user account of the vehicle ID. VIN code backup vehicle ConnectedDrive set to the user's account. In the portal changes to these devices will change the car settings, and included with the application.
