Since the invention of the Smart Keys for cars so as to aid security and reduction of car theft – there have been no break into it but now the Finnish Police found out that hacker’s can now break into it.
A smart key is an electronic access and authorization of system that which was first developed by Siemens in 1995 and introduced by Mercedes-Benz under the name “Key-less Go” in 1998.
According to Finnish police, who have probably recorded some case of hack and theft via the penetration into the so called Smart Car Keys want you to keep the keys in the fridge in other to prevent the signal sent by the keys.
“It sounds strange, but it makes sense,” said Jari Tiiainen of the National Bureau of Investigation.
The main idea about this smart keys is that it emits a signal when the driver touches the door handle. The lock opens when it recognises the key’s signal. and now the Criminals have technology that can strengthen that signal even from a hundred metres away—well inside the residential property where most owners keep their keys, according to Eero Heino of the If insurance company.
Keeping the key is the fridge blocks this signal sent by the Smart Key thou “We haven’t recommended fridges, but foil will do the same job,” said Heino.
Car theft through hacking of the smart keys was last recorded in Sweden and it is also common is the US Hieno said.
Remember some key batteries can be damaged if they are kept at low temperatures, so it’s good to check the manual before starting a cold-storage routine.
