Unable to post a reply in the post below, so I will post it here.
I think it is highly unethical to make public how to defeat locks. I also believe that if a person makes that information known and another uses that information to commit a crime, then the person who first made that info public is an accomplice to that crime. Of course Tobias does not agree.
It would be ironic if Mr. Tobias suffered a loss due to the defeat of a lock that he exposed a weakness in. I wonder if he feels any remorse for the people who has suffered losses because of the information he provided.
Most locksmiths know of "tricks" or "techniques" to bypass or get through locks, but they don't reveal them to the general public because they have ethics. They don't reveal such information under the guise of trying to get the manufactures to make better locks either.
I have stated my opinion only but I am sure that there are others that agree.
