I think this is a device that works on the car alarm and door lock sistem frequency . However , I don't understand how they manage to start the cars .

It looks like the device is broadcasts many "car remote" signals, and the thieves just walk around cars until one of them opens.
Lesson learned: Don't leave valuables in your car.

many cars don't have a cylinder keylock for the ignition, just a chip that reacts when the key is close enough. I guess that part is hackable too. There was another video here on snotr a couple, three months ago about a dude who literally hacked a car to do what he wanted. I was not suprised at all.

#2, #4 Shut up both of you, nobody stealing cars with that thing, just opening doors! And there is nothing "high-tech" about this, you could make an app for your phone to do the same thing, it would just take longer.

That is what happens when they rely too much on computer technology. That is why even though mechanical devices can be crude, but at times they would be your best companions.

Can you please point out where i am saying anything about the cars being stolen? No? Oh, that's probably because i didn't. Learn to read, and learn to interpret before you lash out at people. Now, pls, stfu.

Somehow this reminds me of the hacking from the new Ubisot game Watch_dogs. It only helps to demonstrate just how full of technology our every day life has become... =)

Also, despite being against the tone of #5's post, I feel obliged to add this to be fair.

#8 I can point out where you "said" it. You see, #2 brought up the idea that they (thieves) not only open the cars, but that they also start them using said box. As we all know, starting a car usually suggests stealing thereof. And since you built up on this premise by suggesting possible explanation, you demonstrated support for the idea. Such support, for the purposes of #5's post, is the very same thing as saying so yourself.

Just following your advice to #5 about reading a interpreting before lashing... He clearly isn't the only one in need of such advice.

It all boil's down to that old saying "What one man can invent...another will circumvent", to that I'll'll add "sooner or later".

So, if someone asks about something, even tho it's not relevant to YOU, one should reply in a way that you divert them from the original thought towards the discussion you want yourself?

#10 True. It's strange though, this common sense construct should suggest a cycle where security standard is upgraded reasonably long before it can be circumvented by a third party. I guess this is not in place because of the immense costs it would represent... and/or maybe because such cycles would be nigh impenetrable, which would likely lead to downfall of security systems, as the customers would (over time) forget what failure of such system entails.
To illustrate: If you couldn't concieve that someone breaks into apartments to steal things (simply because there are no existing victims to burglary and therefore no burglars), would you still lock your door?

Food for thought! =)

#11 No, I'm not motivated enough for that... =/

#12 Actually, I haven't ventured into what should or shouldn't be done. All I did was to explain your involvement in #5's post and possibly reminded you that your advice would serve you better than agitation over an offensive post. As for #5's post, it has already received its critique via the rating system, no need for me (or anyone) to venture there again.

You were pretty clearly aiming at the fact you thought i did not interpret or read well myself, which in all fairness was a total miss, as i clearly replied directly to the comment made which was raising a very specific question. Then someone tells me to shut up, which i will reply to just as harsh, i don't care what ratings people are giving each other in that context. Lash out at someone wrongfully, and you will risk to get talked back at the very same way. That said, your own involvement was totally uncalled for, as you brought nothing to the discussion of value, besides venturing into a world of rhetoric's. If you want to have discussions, that are real and genuinly based on something worth talking about, then i suggest you approach the next discussion in a different manner.

Informatic security around car keys is extremelly weak and vulnerable, as it has always been.

Cars manufacturers didn't care, until incidents like this start to happen.

The solution is simple, the technology already exists for free thanks to PC development. Car manufacturers should begin its implementation.
