Lockpickers took advantage of US Transportation Security Administration breach in which photos of its ‘approved’ locks were posted online
Anyone with a 3D printer can now unlock every single TSA-approved padlock, thanks to a security lapse by the American government agency.
The Transportation Security Administration, created following the 9/11 attacks to ensure the safety of travellers into and around the US, requires any lock on bags to be branded as “travel sentry approved”, to enable them to carry out searches without having to break the lock or bag.
