Hacker creates a $9,000 ‘keyless repeater’ device that can wirelessly unlock any luxury car by creating an extended bridge connection to the owner’s fob without their knowledge

A pseudonymous hacker going by the name ‘EvanConnect’ is selling a device that will let users break into any luxury car that uses a wireless key fob system.

EvanConnect demonstrated the device, called a keyless repeater, with a video released this week.

The video shows him approaching an unattended Jeep in a parking lot and using the small handheld device with an antenna to unlock the driver’s side door of the Jeep and start the engine

He says the car in the video belonged to a friend who gave him permission to use it, so no crime was actually committed, but he admits there’s no guarantees as to how his customers might use the device.
