Oh man, this is just too much.




The Ultimate Lock Picker Hacks Pentagon, Beats Corporate Security for Fun and Profit

"Between stabs at his salad, Tobias hands me his latest idea of fun: nearly 300 pages of self-published hacker-porn detailing his attack on the allegedly uncrackable Medeco high-security lock. “Trust me, this will cause a goddamned riot!” he says, dabbing at tears of joy with a paper napkin. “Oh yeah, this is way, way bigger than the liquid explosives thing!” And he’s right, it is bigger—and with way, way bigger consequences."

These trinket salesmen threatened to sue someone who proves that the claims are fraudulent.

Especially humiliating when a 12 year old girl breaks your security claim.

Hi,

That was a great read. For some reason he reminds me of Robin Hood!
I was not surprised at all of the hubris the Medeco people when it was discovered that their locks were not super-hack proof. They could have handled the situation better, by working with Tobias instead of ignoring him, and subsequently talking about him to others.


No security device created can ever be hack or break proof. However it can always be improved so that it is such a pain in the rear that it becomes hardly worth the effort. When a company becomes so sure of its product as to believe it will always be a superior thing, the company begins practically creating its own downfall.

Im glad Tobias is on our side, and by 'our' I mean us, the regular people.

Medeco locks have been used in payphones for years.

In the late 1980s early 1990s there was a person that traveled the western US and opened 1000s of the coin boxes by picking the locks.

I have a method of opening Medeco locks that is even faster.
about 2 milliseconds using a liquid high explosive.

But that is saved for after TEOTWAWKI.
there is a lot of things stored behind high security locks that i would want in that case and i have long planed how to get in to though places.

after watching the vidios i pick up on how there Medico bump keys work and the draw backs in how they do it.

the problem is that you need to know the side bar code to pick the right bump key to use.

with the lock instaled there is no way to see the side bar.

They were putting the lock in a vice and could read the side bar code before trying to open the lock.

This gave a importent clue as to the bump key to use.

With out this clue they would have had to bump the lock with each of there bump keys till one worked this would have taken a lot more time.

On a 4 pin lock Medeco lock there are 64 side pin combinations so you would have to have 64 bump keys each with a different combination of pin angles and try them one at a time
On a 5 pin you would need 125 bump keys to cover all the combinations
