A signal amplifier (under $20 on ebay) is all that is needed to convince your keyless car you are legit.  So if you are within a 150~ ft of your car a thief can come by with an amplifier and make the car thing you have a keyfob in hand.  Proximity equals authentication with “passive” key entry systems.\ \ Article recommends putting your keys in the freezer or microwave…I see to many chances for ruin there.  Maybe a faraday bag instead?\ \ \ \ Heard about this on from Security Now podcast if interested in detailed explanation. \ \ #keylessexploit{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}  \ #securitynow{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}\ #carsecurity{.ot-hashtag .bidi_isolate}
