a cellphone has all the ingredients you need to conduct an attack and compromise all the RFID tags in the vicinity
This article had me litterally laughing out loud.
I can’t believe this is possible.
The replacement for the dutch strippenkart is an RFID enabled card with your details and credit on it.
The idea that I could set up my mobile to hack the bus and get a free ride is definetly tempting.
On the other hand, the ability of people to suck your personal details off of an RFID onto their phone is a bit scary.
I am glad I will not be signing on to the new RFID scheme and will be taking the anonymous option that they place in an obscure location on their website. [OV Chipkaart]
