Axa bike locks, quite popular in the Netherlands have a vulnerability which the bike thieves found first. Now described by Barry Wels in blackbag : AXA: A new phase in security where Axa tries to tell peopleBuy our new secure bike lock and oh by the way some of our previous locks seem to be vulnerable to manipulation
Just found on the SSDeV website, the list of winners of the Dutch open, with Berend Eggers as winner of the Dutch Open lockpicking.
I was at the Dutch Open lockpicking championships last weekend, organized by Toool. Well, I think I did not finish last, but I came close. I had to leave during the semi-finals to get back home at a reasonable time, so I don't know yet who won, I do know it must have been one of the germans from Sportsfreunde der Sperrtechnik, the german lockpicking group. All the semi-finalists were germans. This was predicted beforehand ;)
I am back from WhatTheHack. It was great, saw a lot of people, attended interesting workshops, gave a few lockpicking workshops, competed in the Dutch Open 2005 lockpicking championships (ok, I never got close to the finals, but it was fun to be there). I met people from the German lockpicking club (Sportsfreunde der Sperrtechnik Deutschland e.V.) which was real nice. Best feature was EventPhone who managed to set up a complete network of DECT coverage on the site.
