According to an engineer at Two Six Labs, this vulnerability is a vulnerability to the lack of security measures of Bluetooth function of VT 10i. "Anyone can unlock the VT 10i in just a few seconds if you can write a script." In addition, ArsTechnica says, "Most of the important information to write a script to unlock the VT10i is in the official blog of Two Six Labs, and programmers can compensate for missing information themselves for as little as an hour You can create an unlock script, "he says.

Incidentally, one of the reasons for unlocking by remote control is that the Bluetooth function is not encrypted. In addition to this, it is pointed out that VT 10i is a security vulnerability in that anyone can try unlimited attempts to pair Bluetooth. In addition, the VT 10i can specify a maximum of 8 digits PIN code, but since the numbers can only be used from 1 to 5, the PIN code is limited to about 390 thousands of the 5th to the 8 th power at the maximum, Given that many codes are less than 8 digits, the risk of unlocking is high.

According to the vulnerability included in the Bluetooth function, Vaultek reveals that it is planning to update the firmware, according to a technician at Two Six Labs "VT 10i does not seem to have a firmware update mechanism That thing. Therefore, there is concern that there is no way to eliminate the vulnerability without recalling the product.

Furthermore, at Two Six Labs, users of VT 20i are alarming that it is necessary to immediately turn off Bluetooth connection to safely store guns and valuable items.
