If you still do your shopping in stores, there is reason to be cautious this holiday shopping season when parking your car. A device has surfaced that intercepts clones the signal sent from a key fab and allows an individual to gain access to your automobile. In some cases, it also allows the thief to start the car and drive away!
I’ve always wondered how high the risk was to intercepting signals from key fabs. Personally, I’m not very concerned because I’ve transferred the risk of loss to my insurance company. Also, I don’t drive the most desirable vehicle. Still, it’s important that we all be aware of our surroundings and these security vulnerabilities, even when we aren’t online.
