The $30 Device can Unlock Almost Any Car and Garage Door

Imagine if you could use a small, inexpensive device to unlock almost any car or garage door. Well, that’s not a robber’s dream, that device actually exists.

Now, researchers have discovered another type of car hack that can be used to unlock almost every car or garage door.

 

Car & Garage door keys can commonly be use for constantly changing the codes to unlock the doors. These codes called ” Rolling Codes ” they are the unique combinations that can change every time you press the lock or unlock button on your wireless key, and expire as soon as they are used. Because of this, and despite the fact that another researcher has shown in the past that these systems can be abused, they’ve been long considered relatively secure.

“As you make more devices wireless most of those signals can be intercepted or abused in some way.”

Two radios needed, and microcontroller and of course a battery, these will cost barely upto 30$, and the device that will be ready called RollJam capable to unlock every car or garage at a click of just a button, and making auto hacking cars so simple that anyone can do it easily.
The recent hack takes advantage of the same vulnerable wireless unlocking technology that is being used by the majority of cars manufacturers.

“As you make more devices wireless most of those signals can be intercepted or abused in some way,” Kamkar told me. “We’re not paying attention to the security around it.”
