    So, did he use R2-D2, C3PO or Data? That article title is failure.

    :D:D He used a Samsung galaxy and he didn't hack a plan, just a computer model of one, showing that he could if he wanted to.

    Scary for sure. Sadly they have known the system was vulnerable since 2012. Damn, I kept reading the article and it keeps getting worse and worse. The guy who did this is involved with building the new encrypted system which thankfully will roll out over the NEXT 20 YEARS!.

    At the end of the article there is a link to another one about weaponizing items you can guy after the TSA check point. The presenter builds himself a cross bow out of crap from the airport! LMAO! :D

    beyond tsa checkpoints weaponizing everyday items sold airports
