Something else to worry about...

Thieves have gotten access to the key fob database and have used it to unlock cars...

Re: Something else to worry about...

We're entering a world of smart thieves when it comes to vehicles, and not merely street thugs that know how to hot wire. If a thief wants something, they'll get it. That's why you insure anything of value that you cannot or are not willing to absorb loss of.

Re: Something else to worry about...

I wouldn't worry about this anymore than when a SlimJim and a slap hammer could get you in and running in less than 60 seconds.

It just means that the 'good guy' techs now have to come up with a better way to slow the bad guys down. And as they say on the TV show Leverage, sometimes the bad guy is the best good guy.
