“White Hat” Hacker Clones The Passports And Drivers Licences Of Unsuspecting Americans


The Video below shows a hacker who using a $250 Motorola RFID reader and antenna connected to his laptop managed to read the RFID tags off of drivers licenses, passports and other identity documents that have RFID tags in them. Plus he managed to find and clone TWO passports.


The only good news in this is that he’s a “white hat” hacker which means he’s one of the good guys. The video is meant to show how craptastic RFID is from a security standpoint.

If this video scares you (and it should) here are some products from that will protect you from this sort of thing (I own the wallet myself):

RFID Blocking Wallet

RFID Blocking Passport Billfold

Stainless Steel RFID Blocking Passport Sleeve
