Hacker Samy Kamkar releases another hack to keep folks up at night, the RollJam. Forget that it costs just $32 to build. Remember that it can open virtually every car and garage door on the road today. In case you haven’t heard of Samy Kamkar, he is the guy who released OwnStar to hack any vehicle with OnStar RemoteLink.
His latest hack, the RollJam, is a gadget that intercepts codes used for unlocking most vehicles and opening garage doors. Supposedly this will open most vehicles made by Toyota, Chrysler, Daewoo, Fiat, GM, Honda, Volvo, Lotus, Volkswagen, Ford, Cadillac, Nissan, etc… Same goes for the big garage door openers made by Liftmaster and Genie.
Time for the car companies and garage door opener folks to start patching their wireless entry systems. Supposedly the fix is quite simple. Rolling out the fix is another issue altogether.
