UK ID card - hacked, cloned and modifed
Good old Mr Laurie from the bunker.... and just because its the Daily Mail, it doesn't mean its bullshit.
New ID cards are supposed to be 'unforgeable' - but it took our expert 12 minutes to clone one, and programme it with false data | Mail Online
Not that the police need any encouragement to get trigger happy:
"With a few more keystrokes on his computer, Laurie changes the cloned card so that whereas the original card holder was not entitled to benefits, the cloned chip now reads 'Entitled to benefits'....he adds a message that would be visible to any police officer or security official who scanned the card: 'I am a terrorist - shoot on sight.'"
The Home Office has dismissed the report. "This story is rubbish. We are satisfied the personal data on the chip cannot be changed or modified and there is no evidence this has happened," said a spokesperson.
Two sides of the same coin.
