Feb 11 - Canada to ban the Flipper Zero to stop surge in car thefts
 

 
The Canadian government plans to ban the Flipper Zero and similar devices after tagging them as tools thieves can use to steal cars.

The Flipper Zero is a portable and programmable pen-testing tool that helps experiment with and debug various hardware and digital devices over multiple protocols, including RFID, radio, NFC, infrared, and Bluetooth.

Users have been demonstrating Flipper Zero's features in videos shared online since its release, showcasing its capacity to conduct replay attacks to unlock cars, open garage doors, activate doorbells, and clone various digital keys.

"Criminals have been using sophisticated tools to steal cars. And Canadians are rightfully worried," Canadian Industry Minister Franois-Philippe Champagne tweeted on Wednesday.

"Today, I announced we are banning the importation, sale and use of consumer hacking devices, like flippers, used to commit these crimes."

Champagne's announcement comes after a national summit on combatting auto theft hosted this week by the Government of Canada in Ottawa, Ontario.

Champagne tweet Flipper Zero ban


According to the Canadian government, around 90,000 vehicles (or one car every six minutes) are reported stolen every year, with car theft resulting in $1 billion in annual losses, including insurance costs for fixing and replacing stolen cars.

The figures shared by the Canadian government when describing the car theft surge currently impacting Canada align with the most recent data shared by the Statistics Canada government agency, which shows an increasing number of car theft reports since 2021.

Canadian police also reported that motor vehicle theft had the most significant impact on an increase in the national Crime Severity Index in 2022.

The Canadian government's Innovation, Science and Economic Development (ISED) department (and the country's industry and commerce regulator) says that it will "pursue all avenues to ban devices used to steal vehicles by copying the wireless signals for remote keyless entry, such as the Flipper Zero, which would allow for the removal of those devices from the Canadian marketplace through collaboration with law enforcement agencies."

​While the Canadian government insists that the Flipper Zero is one of the reasons behind the current surge of car thefts in the country, Flipper Devices, the company behind the devices, says the gadget can't be used to steal vehicles built within the last 24 years.

"Flipper Zero can't be used to hijack any car, specifically the ones produced after the 1990s, since their security systems have rolling codes," Flipper Devices COO Alex Kulagin told BleepingComputer.

"Also, it'd require actively blocking the signal from the owner to catch the original signal, which Flipper Zero's hardware is incapable of doing.

"Flipper Zero is intended for security testing and development and we have taken necessary precautions to ensure the device can't be used for nefarious purposes."

Amazon has also banned the sale of the Flipper Zero since April 2023 for being a card skimming device after the Brazilian National Telecommunications Agency began seizing incoming Flipper Zero purchases in March 2023 due to its alleged use by criminals.

1 car stolen every 6 minutes? And he thinks that the crooks will just throw their Flipper devices away since it's now being banned.

How do people even get access to these flippers and Glock switches?

Feels like they access level is greater than we assumed it was, is there an Amazon for illegal products?

If you would rather PM the answer, I respect it. Just curious so I know how to avoid becoming one of the statistical victims of the kids out here.

Also to keep an eye on what the young ones I mentor . They spend all day in the Internet, so I have no idea how they come across this stuff in the first place

I'd rather not have that tied to my Google profile, I just asked a quick question, n1ggas could just pm . I'm not asking for links

I was actually looking to be informed.

But y'all scared to actually talk to people when they ask real and relevant questions.

I'm not asking someone to incriminate themselves by putting links in the thread.

I wanted to get a flipper for a while but they're always sold out and reselling at like $4-500 so haven't really cared to bite.

I'm sure they'll be double now.

It used to be the black web for purchases like that. Now I wouldn’t be surprised if apps like telegram make it easier. Not to mention a lot of things banned by Amazon, etc can purchased directly from manufacturer or some other third party website.

I.E. royal honey & drug purity test used to be sold on Amazon. Makers got smart and built third party websites to sell it and ship it .
Thank you
Also I wonder is that how all these SRTs & Hellcats in my region are being stolen right out of driveways.

Searching sh1t isn’t what gets you fu#ked up. It’s when you buy it, commit a crime with it, and then ya dumba$s try to cover it up and get caught. Food for thought My Gs.

It was just a question
The Tor Browser is a web browser designed for anonymous web surfing and protection against traffic analysis. It is a modified version of Mozilla Firefox that connects to the internet via the Tor network. The Tor Browser isolates each website you visit, preventing third-party trackers and ads from following you, and automatically clears cookies and browsing history when you're done browsing. It aims to make all users look the same, making it difficult for you to be fingerprinted based on your browser and device information. Your traffic is relayed and encrypted three times as it passes over the Tor network, which is comprised of thousands of volunteer-run servers known as Tor relays .


The Tor Browser also bundles a number of extensions that help users maintain their privacy. For example, the NoScript extension is bundled with Tor out of the box, meaning that users have to manually approve individual JavaScript files before they can run, helping to protect against fingerprinting and browser security exploits .

And for the love of your preferred skydaddy, do not log into google over tor. In fact, wean yourself off google entirely.
