05:59 pm - Mythbuster's censored
This is an interesting Slashdot article: CC Companies Scotch Mythbusters Show On RFID Security.
It's basically about how incredibly insecure RFID chips are from a whole host of different perspectives, and why you should never, ever let anybody give you something with an RFID chip in it that is supposed to have some sort of legal meaning of some sort, like a credit card, or a passport, though you don't have much choice nowadays with passports. Of course, this information is just too scary for the public to know, so the credit card companies all got together and pressured the Discovery channel into censoring the Mythbuster's episode in which they demonstrate this.
Nobody should be afraid of what Mythbuster's does. Anybody who is definitely has something to hide.
