Thieves make off with luxury car in a matter of seconds


It’s called a “relay attack,” and is made possible by a flawed concept: proximity keys.

JUST WATCH:

If your car has doors that unlock and an engine that starts simply with a key being in proximity (meaning, you don’t actually stick the key in the ignition), you could be at risk.

A GIZMODO REPORT claims devices like these can be whipped together with about $20 worth of hardware. 

Maybe it’s time to bring back an old school security device???
