Submission + - Hacked E-Passports crash readers (wired.com)

Cain writes: "Lukas Grunwald, an RFID expert who has served as an e-passport consultant to the German parliament, says he's succeeded in sabotaging two passport readers made by different vendors by cloning a passport chip, then modifying the JPEG2000 image file containing the passport photo. Reading the modified image crashed the readers, which suggests they could be vulnerable to a code-injection exploit that might, for example, reprogram a reader to approve expired or forged passports."
