Chrysler Recalls 1.4 Million Cars After Remote Hacking of Jeep

Chrysler is recalling about 1.4 million cars equipped with certain radios, a move related to a security flaw highlighted by hackers earlier this week, the company said in a press release Friday.
The recall, which includes Dodges, Jeeps, Rams and Chryslers, comes after Wired magazine published an article Tuesday in which two hackers were able to manipulate remotely a Jeep Cherokee's computer software.
Chrysler is urging customers to contact the company for a software update if their vehicle is part of the recall.
CNBC learned that owners do not need to visit a dealer as part of the recall.
