Exxon Mobile SpeedPass Hack via RFIDTired of paying for gas? Are you a geek with a laptop, knowledge of the Texas Instruments RFID spec and live near an Exxon Mobile gas station equipped with SpeedPass? If so then you're in luck. Here's a site that documents the process they used to hack the SpeedPass RFID algo and videos of them demonstrating their hack.
This hasn't been verified by an outside source yet so there's a possibility it's a viral marketing ploy setup by Exxon Mobile but I'm not sure that's realistic. There's a link at the top of the site to RSA Labs which is a division of RSA security Inc. so it appears to be legit.
