PETALING JAYA: Owners of cars using the keyless entry system are at risk of having their vehicles stolen in minutes by a frequency­-hacking device that is available locally.

The device, which costs about RM150 and can be obtained online or at some electronics stores, can unlock a car and start its engine by hacking its radio frequency identification (RFID) information.
