Quote from: EssJay on November 27, 2017, 10:18:14 amSeems the BBC are a bit short on news today, as this has been in the news for the last 6 months or more.I have keyless entry/start on my car, and for a couple of quid I bought a small RF protection pouch from Amazon, and just pop my key in it when indoors.It's actually a very similar problem to the credit/debit card cloning scam, and uses a similar method to clone, that's why I also have an RF blocking wallet.
