Have a Volkswagen? Better buy a steering wheel lock. Researchers at the University of Birmingham, in concert with German engineering firm Kasper & Oswald, have found a wireless hack to unlock any VW built between 1995 and early this year. Translation: VW's awful year just got a lot worse. The hack doesn't require anything fancy either. Just $40 (£31) for a radio receiver and some reverse engineering allows the contraption to intercept any VW wireless key fob, so long as it's within 300 feet of the vehicle. With one intercepted signal, it can create a clone and then use that cryptographic key signal to unlock the car. The hack also impacts some Audi,SEATand Skoda vehicles. Scary stuff.
