New TSA blunder leads to lockpickers 3D printing master keys to government-approved locks

Thursday, October 22, 2015 by

Remember those guys you knew in high school who played World of Warcraft zealously, aspired boldly to work as a professional gas clerk and are now rooting incessantly for Bernie Sanders 2016? Well, you should; you likely employ them through your taxes at the TSA, or more pointedly the “Three Stooges Audition.” Now, you might wonder, what have these couch heroes accomplished now?

Well, it turns out that the TSA has recently had to learn a hard lesson of basic physical security, as they obliviously published public pictures of the master keys that open the locks they’ve asked millions of Americans to use, and then helplessly watched in aggravation as a group of lockpickers and security enthusiasts published a 3D-printable CAD file which precisely duplicates the master set.

For an agency which claims to be our last line of defense against Jihadi Johns committing senseless acts of  large-scale terrorism against our populace, they don’t seem to have the foresight to follow elementary security protocols. This makes perfect sense when we look back at what Jon Corbett discovered in his lawsuits against the TSA: that they are simply an apparatus of intimidation and totalitarian acclimation.
