With a bit of hunting keys can be found on the internet, however - how are they gotten hold of in the first place? Is the card-cam interface snooped on a pucker subscription card set up and the key captured at pre-requisite time? Are they brute force guesstimated until found? I'm just curious.... CTS

Some keys are leaked and some are obtained, but in the second case it's often a lot more difficult than just forcing the keys out. The whole process has to be understood by chipping away until there are no more unknowns left. This is often the result of persistant examination of a given card, until some kind of flaw is detected.


... errr, probably....
