Nissan Suspends App Downloads Until Hacking Issues Are Fixed

Kudos to Nissan for acting quickly on this matter. The company has apologized and pulled its NissanConnect EV app until it can be fixed. You can see the original story here.

The NissanConnect EV app, which lets Leaf owners access their car’s information and some controls remotely, was the main conduit for the potential unwanted access, and has been made unavailable. I suspect that even for users that have the app downloaded already, the servers the app talks to (which in turn communicates with the cars) have been taken down, at least temporarily.
