Farmers turn into hackers for their tractors

More and more farmers in America are hacking the John Deere tractors firmware to repair them, says the Motherboard.

The reason behind this illegal activity is that John Deere has licensed it only to Deere dealers and licensed stores that can perform tractor work.

This may look fine at a glance - John Deere has built the tractor, and knows the best way to correct it, is not it? This is just a part of it though. According to the farmers, the company pays a heavy price for its work and most of the time technicians do not rush to reach.

"If a farmer bought the tractor he should be able to do what he wants with it," Kevin Kenney, a farmer and repair attorney said in Nebraska. "You want to replace a broadcast - transfer it to an independent engineer who can put this new gear, but the tractor can not even reach out of the shop. Deere charges $ 230 plus $ 130 per hour for a technician to connect the plug to the door USB to approve the party. "

The legal license did not allow farmers to sue the company for any kind of "crop loss, loss of profits, loss of use of equipment ... resulting from the execution or non-execution of any aspect of the software".

Due to farmers turning to online hackers, John Deere's broken versions are given software which circumvent the pre-requisite permit, which allows farmers to work on their own tractors.
