Hey all,

An interesting article here - https://nakedsecurity.sophos.com/2016/03/23/time-to-stash-your-keyless-car-entry-fob-in-with-the-frozen-pork-chops/

Asking as recently my friends car was stolen using this method and to my horror just noticed that the QQ is on the list.

Have any of you considered this and do you have any prevention methods??

I was thinking of taking all the batteries out the fobs and using the old method but its such a hassel. Maybe a metal box over night?

Or do i just need to get rid of my tin hat and get on with life?

Just that it happened quite close to home.

Your thoughts?

So keeping your keys near the front door is not a great idea! Can't see how they can get around this with a software update either. Wish I had a garage now!Confused

As I understand it, they can hack straight in to your car with a laptop - keys within range not necessary.  Friend's Range Rover was stolen thus.
