+ - New Zealand's hackable transport card grants free bus rides->

The flaws in the MiFare Classic system allow anyone to add limitless funds to their transport cards and also buy cheap grey market cards and add them to the system (VIDEO).

The website fails to check users meaning attackers could look up details of residents and opens the potential for someone to write a script and erase all cards in existence. The flaws have been known to the operator since 2009."
