How to Clone and Modify E-Passports:

The weakness is in the way the system has been rolled out. The terminal accepts self-signed data.

ePassports aid Data Theft:

The 3 meter barrier has recently been broken for reading RFID data (e.g. your ePassport data) from a distance 3 meters away. Attacks always get better. They never get worse. The next barrier is 5, 10 and 20 meters.

Before you know, you lost your IDENTITY and are CLONED

Nice links - you still have to forge a real passport though, you can't just rock up with an RFID chip.

Makes you think though.

Not sure this thread is gonna stay active though! You may incur Mod wrath

The OP is not insinuating anyone to make a fake passport, just spreading news so we can be aware if someone does it to us.
The scary part is the bombs made to read a certain person's ID and detonate only when the said person is in range.
Makes me glad I live in the sticks.
