Pandora Alarms BBC News
Friday, 8 March 2019 | Admin
Aired this morning at around 6.45AM there was a video played on the BBC news channel regarding the Pandora alarm systems and two other very well known brands in the car security industry. The video aired displaying footage of a range rover being unlocked and the anti hijack being activated via the online portal ( Pandora-on.com ). This part of the video is fake due to the Pandora online portal ( pandora-on.com ) not allowing the system to lock / unlock the doors while the vehicle is in motion. You also can't activate anti-hijack ( where the vehicles indicators flash for a period of 30 seconds then the vehicle immobilises ) via the online portal.
The company Pen Test Partners found a glitch / hack in the pandora-on.com where it allowed hackers to create a new password for online accounts. They also found a glitch / hack for two other main alarm brands. This glitch / loop hole got fixed by Pandora Russia within 24 hours ( not the 4 days stated in the video ) This loop hole would have only applied to the following alarm systems ( Pandora Smart, Pandora Smart Pro, Pandora Professional ) But once again the loop hole was fixed within 24 hours offering complete piece of mind to any customer using Pandora-on.com.
Even if this glitch wasn't fixed the video is still flawed / fake due to Pandora systems offering total security at every stage. We have listed the main security layers below that apply to EVERY Pandora alarm system....
What layers does Pandora feature for the best security ?
Why was this BBC video created fake / Misguiding ?
Should I worry if I have a Pandora alarm system fitted or planning to get one installed?
The BBC confirmed these attacks can't be used or carried out without an ADR Tag / Immobiliser tag making their comments invalid!
