A free ride thanks to NFC

NFC rhymes with free.

2 participants of the EUSecwest security (LOL) conference demonstrated an Android app that can reset the public transit access cards utilized in San Francisco (MUNI) and New Jersey (PATH). Which means: free train rides.

Yippy... Or not. Probably just one of many many NFC exploits to come. Worth noting that US transit authorities have been warned of this exploit since 2011!!!
