Free Gas? ummmm ok
Hackers remotely give out 600 gallons in Detroit and the clerks can't do a thing!
Can you imagine if this hacking went viral? Hmm the
Implications for the future are interesting...

the thieves used some sort of remote device that allowed them to hijack the pump and take control away from the gas station employee. Police confirmed to the local publication that the device prevented the clerk from using the gas station’s system to shut off the individual pump.

Dumbass clerks should know how to turn off the pumps.

The entire gas pumping system is run via computers I'm surprised this hasn't happened before now...

They couldn't just cut the power to the pumps?
This reminds me of the toyota floor mat problem- they had a line of cars where the gas pedal would get wedged on the floor mat. One woman called 911 flying down the highway over a hundred mph... never occurred to her to just switch the ignition off, or shift out of drive into neutral.

Maybe I need to get into hacking, I could use some free fuel.

It's called a circuit breaker.
Each pump or row has it's own breaker

Some one let the Hatians know! But seriously the hacker hacks and 10 vechicles fill up? Can you imagine all the old gas stations that might be exposed to this globally?

I'd be nice to get some details of the exploit, there article refers to a 'device', but describes interfering with software.
I'd imagine no one is in a hurry to share the details for obvious reasons.

Aziz says the system wouldn’t respond and it wasn’t until he says he got an emergency kit that he was able to shut the pump down, and then call police.


I don't know what an emergency kit is because I don't work at a gas station, so I can't say either way.

So what is this, the beginning of the government to micro manage the internet from the people to prevent this sorta thing from happening again... Now we are going to start hearing about how dangerous the internet is and how it claims so many lives and it must be controlled and not in the hands of trolls! The worse part about, there will be people who fall and believe who push that agenda just like many others going on today... Wait for it

Heroes eh ?

The STATION is on the hook for that gas.

Contrary to the bullsnip about them.,

Big oil got out of owning them decades ago.

Yeah you’re not going to find a lot of sympathy for the oil industry over here.

HAHA those stupid employees didn’t even think about the shut off button. And even if the button was broke they could have gone out and pulled the nozzles off. There is such a thing called the secondary.

Pulled the nozzle off?

The emergency shut off sure but removing the nozzles is silly at best.
