This whole thing, the way the media has spun it, and agencies "investigating" it, is 100% bs.There is probably more to it than the key fob and/or either unlocking sequence....
Whats shown in the vid was developed 14+ years ago. Its one of 3 methods that were, in controlled tests, in reponse to planned mass use of remote keyless entry systems with passive entry. To demonstrate the initial systems and now fast forward to today, have these vulnerabilities. But it didnt need to go this way, but did, to save a few pennies.
Tech to make this more difficult has been around for years (some of best solutuions were identified when the vulnerability testing occurred back then.)
I'm amazed we are here. I'm also blown away the auto insurance industry hasn't sued the auto industry (not all but many manufacturers based on their conscious choices to save < pennies per) for deciding to introduce remote entry, and as you see with really what were some of the worst methods that have so many security comprimises. Because there was a scientific community that was formed, it had global representation and the data and facts are out there to show why we are here now. Over 14 years ago.
And then the media and lord knows who else is out there saying "new tech bla bla bla" and while they are bringing it back into light, all the "what is it" "how does it work" in part must just be more bs spin to try to play to the masses to keep them from knowing the reality of how we got here.
