Hotel lock firm's security fix requires hardware changes for millions of keycard locks
Good news for the security of hotels and travelers: Onity, whose keycard locks can be found on at least four million rooms around the world, has a plan to fix a security flaw that could allow hackers to insert a homemade device into its keycard locks and open them in seconds.
The bad news: the fix requires hardware changes to every affected lock. And for hotels who want more than a bandaid-style repair, Onity wants its customers to pay for it.
