Bump Key

I was just checking out some of the latest on some other IT blog sites and ran across this.

It's called Bump Keying and it shows how simple it can be to use a special key that supposedly is easy to obtain to unlock most any lock. Even those that are supposed to be high security locks. Pretty scary.

This may not seem like an IT issue but if you are charged Physical security then it becomes an IT issue. Not to mention securing your home. There are several posts that mention an Abloy lock that is imune to Bump Keying. I'm going to get one.
