Car thieves in Malaysia have gone high-tech, using device to unlock car with keyless entry

 

cartheft2.jpg

 

Owners of cars using the keyless entry system are at risk of having their vehicles stolen in minutes by a frequency­hacking device that is available in Malaysia.

The device, which costs about RM150 (S$50) and can be obtained online or at some electronics stores, can unlock a car and start its engine by hacking its radio frequency identification (RFID) information.

A source said the device could unlock almost any car with keyless entry.

I still use the old school method to lock the steering but if they wanna steal they'll easily remove it anyway. Still, I think deterrence is better than nothing!

how difficult is it to bring a computer along with the software into SG? Just need the software, a laptop and a cashcard and can drive out of the carpark oredy. So everywhere would be unsafe for the cars with keyless entry and starting system. Dont even need to drive across the causeway as i remembered even stolen cars in MY ended up in sg ports as a point of transit not too long ago.

Deterrence does wonders. With a visible steering lock, thieves will just find it easier to steal another car (so many out there).

That's why I always use my key to lock the car door while in JB. But nowadays cars don't come with keys. Oh well. I mean how hard is it to just use the key to start a car? And I drive a manual transmission, confirm turn off a lot of potential car thieves.

This technology getting cheaper. So more accessible now. I bought those remote that can duplicate car key from taobao, so I guess they just need something that can work from further away instead of being just beside the remote to duplicate the key when the owner presses the button.

What is the reason/logic behind aluminium being able to block the signal?

With the correct software, they just need a laptop, plug into the OBD2 port and program a new key. Software can be found quite easily for most cars. Original software cost is quite high. But there are pirated versions from China.
