New Software Duplicates Keys With Photo Taken From 200 Feet
Startled by the number of folks who inadvertently post images of their keys online, the researchers designed the software in order to demonstrate the ease with which a potential thief could gain access to a house or car. They hope that folks will exercise the same vigilance with photos of their house keys that they do with their credit card and Social Security numbers.
Would-be thieves be warned, though: that car whose key you just copied might just turn right back around and bite you. [From: Slashdot]
