Submission + - Long-Range RFID Hacking Tool to be Released at Black Hat (threatpost.com)

Gunkerty Jeb writes: Next week at the Black Hat Briefings in Las Vegas, Fran Brown will release a modified RFID reader that can capture data from 125KHz low frequency RFID badges from up to three feet away. Previous RFID hacking tools must be within centimeters of a victim to work properly; Brown’s tool would allow an attacker or pen-tester to store the device inside a backpack and it would silently grab card data from anyone walking close enough to it.
