New 'Safest Ever' British Passport Hacked in Just Four Hours


www.dailymail.co.uk

They are the "safest ever", according to the Government. But the Daily Mail has revealed how easily a person’s identity can be stolen from new biometric passports.

In just four hours, the Mail hacked into a new biometric passport and stole the details a people trafficker or illegal migrant would need to set up a life in Britain.

Everything will ALWAYS be hacked. It's a fact of life, I guess they don't understand it. Just like the US government don't understand it with the ID card that will be hacked in a matter of hours, maximum a week. The DVD were hacked, the new Blu-ray is hacked... banks are hacked, the FBI/NSA/CIA were hacked... Don't they understand?

No they do not. It's quite obvious the people writing the laws pertaining to new technology have absolutely no knowledge or clue about how the technology works in the first place. Which is why we have corporate executives easily being able to get laws enacted on their behalf, no matter how impracticable or ludicrous it may seem to the next generation in power...

I really don't know what's worse. Technological illiteracy or Scientific illiteracy...
