+ - UK national ID card cloned in 12 minutes-> 1

Submitted by

Death Metal writes "The prospective national ID card was broken and cloned in 12 minutes, the Daily Mail revealed this morning.

The newspaper hired computer expert Adam Laurie to test the security that protects the information embedded in the chip on the card.

Using a Nokia mobile phone and a laptop computer, Laurie was able to copy the data on a card that is being issued to foreign nationals in minutes."

  • What's interesting about technology like this -- such as electronic voting, passports with chips etc -- is that geeks are often against it. Geeks, who generally love technology and gadgetry, are saying no. Maybe the legislators should listen -- assuming that at least some of them actually care.

Put your best foot forward. Or just call in and say you're sick.
