sorry, not a title anyone wants to see, and now I've got "a server error occurred"... I'll try a post & carry on if it works - I'm being serious about this title btw...
I often get a server error message from speakev at around the same time, being a trusting type I just waited until the server had done its daily 'housekeeping' and was back on line.sorry, not a title anyone wants to see, and now I've got "a server error occurred"...

Yup, the 'server error' here did go away fine, I just had to wait a bit, and check all secure. Maybe you understand if I was a bit jumpy, don't want to pass on any problems!I often get a server error message from speakev at around the same time, being a trusting type I just waited until the server had done its daily 'housekeeping' and was back on line.
Android has nothing to do with an iPhone.after a brief search setting the question:
Security Issues in Nissan’s Mobile App, NissanConnect, Could Potentially Put Users’ Data at Risk
find accounts on the device
Allows the app to get the list of accounts known by the phone. This may include any accounts created by applications you have installed."
Thank-you, that's all helpful info.I don't see anyone being patronising, but providing useful information.
The Leaf does not have any WiFi hardware so cannot physically be providing any vulnerability on that score.
The Bluetooth hardware in the Leaf only has A2DP (for playing music), HFP (for hands free) and PBAP (for address book download - for which you have to enter your PIN and authorise the download). It does not have a networking stack for your phone to connect to the outside world, or for the car to connect to the outside world via your phone.
The Telematics Communication Unit (TCU) in the Leaf is a separate GSM module with its own SIM card that connects to the Nissan Servers. There is no route from your phone to the TCU.
However, you do have to provide username and password for the Nissan CarWings (You+Nissan, whatever) site and that is entered into the car. If you used the same password for CarWings that you use for gmail you might have managed to compromise yourself that way - but using the same password for different accounts does not sound like the sort of thing you would do. But the car itself cannot see your gmail account and has no way to access it. The App vulnerability mentioned is on Android, whereas the iOS apps are sandboxed.
Do you walk around with Wifi turned on on your phone? Or Bluetooth?
