+ - New Cars Vulnerable to Wireless Theft-> 1

tkrotchko writes: In a story published by Technology Review, researchers have demonstrated multiple times that they can bypass wireless entry and ignition system to take to a car without the owner's permission. As researchers in the article point out, security of systems will begin have a real impact to every day use if a thief can simply walk up to your car and drive it away.

Although this article is light on technical details, a companion article shows how the researchers accomplished the security bypass.

An interesting read, and certainly something that will no doubt be the subject of a new movie any day now.
