    Sorry wish I had a link to download but i received an email just a few minutes ago and went and got my update done via a USB drive.

    You can go here to enter your VIN To see if you need the latest recall Uconnect Software Update - Update your Uconnect System

    They did release the following about Software exploit recall date 07/23/2015

    Status Chrysler Recall # NHTSA Recall # Recall Date Safety Defect/Non Compliance Description and Safety Risk Repair Description Recall Status
    [​IMG] R40 15V-461 July 23, 2015 SOME 2013-2015 MY VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH SPECIFIC RADIOS HAVE CERTAIN SOFTWARE SECURITY VULNERABILITIES WHICH COULD ALLOW UNAUTHORIZED THIRD-PARTY ACCESS TO SOME NETWORKED VEHICLE CONTROL SYSTEMS. A SUCCESSFUL EXPLOIT OF THIS SECURITY VULNERABILITY COULD RESULT IN UNAUTHORIZED REMOTE MODIFICATION AND CONTROL OF VEHICLE SYSTEMS. FCA US HAS NOT MADE A DETERMINATION THAT THIS SECURITY VULNERABILITY CONSTITUTES A DEFECT. ALTHOUGH FCA US HAS NOT DETERMINED THAT A DEFECT EXISTS, IT HAS DECIDED TO CONDUCT A REMEDIAL CAMPAIGN AS A SAFETY RECALL IN THE INTEREST OF PROTECTING ITS CUSTOMERS. EXPLOITATION OF THE SOFTWARE SECURITY VULNERABILITIES COULD LEAD TO EXPOSING THE DRIVER, THE VEHICLE OCCUPANTS OR ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL OR VEHICLE WITH PROXIMITY TO THE AFFECTED VEHICLE TO A POTENTIAL RISK OF INJURY. CUSTOMERS AFFECTED BY THE RECALL WILL RECEIVE A USB DRIVE WHICH THEY MAY USE TO UPGRADE VEHICLE SOFTWARE, PROVIDING ADDITIONAL SECURITY FEATURES INDEPENDENT OF THE NETWORK-LEVEL MEASURES. ALTERNATELY, CUSTOMERS MAY VISIT HTTP://WWW.DRIVEUCONNECT.COM/SOFTWARE-UPDATE/ TO INPUT THEIR VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS (VINS) AND DETERMINE IF THEIR VEHICLES ARE INCLUDED IN THE RECALL. IF SO, THEY MAY DOWNLOAD THE SOFTWARE THEMSELVES, OR VISIT THEIR DEALERS, WHERE TECHNICIANS WILL PERFORM THE INSTALLATION. THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THE SOFTWARE OR, IN THE CASE OF DEALER VISIT, INSTALLATION. INCOMPLETE BUT REPAIR PARTS ARE AVAILABLE

    I was caught off guard. Performed an update1 or 2 days before official recall announcement, but, after security announcement, that said utilize Uconnect to update to adress security, so I did. Then day of recall announcement, prior to recall # assigned, I do it again. I see the un zipped file size increases almost 200 megs. So I update car again. Car says I already have this version, but I proceed anyway, not understanding why the different unpacked file sizes, just in case.

    Now recall is official. So I'll wait a few days then do again, and if file sizes change again, do a bit of a deeper dive to understand that.

    Wierd.

    I plugged In my Vin and got this message that I was up to date. Love the message that I have a super charger.

    Thanks to the op for the link I saved it for future visits.
