RFID Insecurity

Those with vested interest in RFID prefer spending money on lawyers instead of improving it.

Mythbusters got busted and was ordered not to air an episode on RFID hacking. Lawyers for Texas Instrument and its customer ganged up on Discovery Channel, who feared lawsuit and loss of advertising, gave-in.

Trust RFID at your own peril.

UPDATE: Adam Savage says maybe he did not get his facts straight.
