While some people think, how to protect cars from breaking , others are developing gadgets that allow to do it. Hacker “security researcher” has created a new cheap way to unlock almost any car or garage door.
The device is called Rolljam. It is a small universal key, which costs only $ 40, and that car manufacturers are called “dangerous and irresponsible».
The new system uses the key “rolling code”, which creates a new code each time you block or unlock the car to stop the thieves, the scanning signal of your transmitter. But it’s the ideal car for the owner.
But he Rolljam can “listen” to lock and unlock the car, and record the signal. And the next time when the vehicle poultice can be easily opened. Even worse for those who have the function remote engine start. In this, too, is capable of Rolljam, and in this case the car even easier to steal (do not need the ignition key).
Creator Rolljam themselves Kamkar said that experienced a new device on the Ford, Toyota, Lotus, Volkswagen, Nissan, Cadillac and Chrysler. And each of them he opened. And he says that he can open the “practically any garage door».
Kamkar says has created the key as a warning for car manufacturers, forcing them to change the code after every opening / closing of the car.
«Most manufacturers do not want to do anything until you will demonstrate the problem. Only when it becomes common knowledge, people start something better, “- said Kamkar.
Rolljam never go on sale, but critics fear that other hackers will be able to make a copy of the device and offer it to the open market.
