Accordingly, the video, which is about half a minute long, records the scene of a stranger approaching the door of the house holding a rope raised with both hands, moving slowly. 15 seconds later, the car behind started and the second thief who was sitting inside got out and left.

The stolen car is a Rolls-Royce Cullinan. This is a luxury car model, with a reference price of about USD 350,000 (equivalent to VND 8.5 billion).
The Sun newspaper (UK) said that the owner of the car was “shocked and very upset”; Essex County Police also investigated the case but have not found the whereabouts of the group of thieves. The Sun newspaper also reported that many car thefts, including a Rolls-Royce Ghost, have occurred in the same area, leaving people very confused, fearing that this is a group of organized thieves. , they followed the expensive cars for days before taking action.
The Daily Mail and The Sun both said that this theft was carried out on request. A contact abroad will order a group of thieves for the example of a certain car, the group will carry it and put the car in a container to deliver it to the contact. After that, the car can be forged and resold, or worse, disassembled to sell parts.
Because these stolen cars were placed in containers immediately after they were stolen, tracking them became very difficult.
The Daily Mail quoted experts as saying that car theft is increasing because, in line with the price of cars in the used car market, the supply of spare parts is also scarce. About 72% of stolen cars cannot be recovered, causing the insurance industry to spend about 1.5 billion pounds (about 46 trillion VND) every year.
The Daily Mail quoted the AA as saying that in the UK there are about 130,000 stolen cars using the Relay Attack method (roughly translated: Wave amplification attacks) as a group of thieves did with the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
Boosting the wave is a form of advanced theft. The group of thieves will use 2 terminal devices, corresponding to 2 users. One person will hold the device and stand near the car, another person will hold the device and stand near the house. This method takes advantage of the fact that the car’s locking system and the smart key have to communicate with each other to ensure security.
First, the thief standing next to the car will activate the car locking system (possible by pressing the unlock button or pulling the door handle); The signal from the system in the car will be amplified by the device for the person standing next to the car to the person standing next to the door, and from the device of the person standing next to the door transmitted to the smart key in the house. The wire that the thief held close to the house is believed to be an antenna wire.
When the key receives a wake-up signal from the car, it will respond with confirmation; The real signal will also be reinforced by the device in the hand of the person standing next to the house to the person standing next to the car and continue to transmit the system to the car, allowing the first person to open the car door.
To start the car, the group of thieves repeated the previous process to continue fooling the keys and locking system in the car.
In fact, not only cars, devices that use radio waves today, such as motorcycle/electric bike keys or door locks, expose many loopholes and can be used for malicious purposes using the following methods: ok.
There are a few ways this can be prevented. The first method is very difficult but can be up to 100% effective, which is to install an additional switch for a smart key. Another easy way is to use Faraday bags, which can be purchased on many different e-commerce platforms or in some electronics stores.
