Parliament Watch: Confusing, indirect answers from govt during Week 2

When the government doesn’t want to tell you something, it won’t, even if it is the Parliament that’s asking.

Researchers Can Duplicate Keys from the Sounds They Make in Locks

Researchers have demonstrated that they can make a working 3D-printed copy of a key just by listening to how the key sounds when inserted into a lock. And you don’t need a fancy mic — a smartphone or smart doorbell will do nicely if you can get it close enough to the lock. The next time you unlock your front door, it might be worth trying to insert your key as quietly as possible; researchers have discovered that the sound of your key being inserted into the lock gives attackers all they need...
