As this story gets increasingly popular in the mainstream media, I’ll probably leave updates to them in the future, but here’s a quick last note about the issue. Fedex has publicly stepped up to say that the hack is no different from stealing, and even though they’ve seen it in pictures, and seen it in movies, they’ll continue to evaluate the claims made by Secure Science. According to the article, only after they had seen the video did they think it was worth some more investigation. It seems like a whitepaper and pictures might have been enough for most people considering the potential they have to lose on this. Hopefully they won’t shoot the messengers, especially considering that they’re not releasing the magic three-byte code.
