[1210] Police Car DVR Data Vault Picked

  • LockPickingLawyer

    Since I posted this, a law enforcement IT specialist informed me that the “tamper switch” does not, in fact, create an audit event, but does interrupt the recording. It might be intended as a function to avoid corrupting the files stored on the flash media (so you can’t remove the media while it’s recording). I was also told that from the locked menu button, a user can format the media, and other than missing recordings, there would be no indication/audit that the format event even happened. ☹️

      In reality is should be a water tight metal box bolted into the trunk. Without a keyhole. Bolts should be voted with pieces of metal soldered to the trunk. Only way to get to it is cut out out.

    • biohazardlnf

      Even if they didn't have a key. It still would somehow " go missing" like every other form of video

    • vanak

      @hk78901 I highly doubt most cops are lockpocking this shit in their cars to alter evidence. You’re just looking for reasons to get uppity about

    These types of locks are used in public transport cam systems as well. Had to install one a few years ago and to activate the recording the key had to be in the locked position but I didn't have a key. Used the tapered end off of a big pen to do a inprint attack and worked beautifully. Kept that pen for over a year and used it at least a dozen times to open and close those recorders. Just made my own key

  • AnthropoPhagus

    I recently got into lockpicking because I wanted to be able to open my game console kiosk models that I don't have keys for, it's been mostly successful, but I'm having big issues with miniature tubular locks, especially the kind that tension on the outside ring with the push in cores that relock them. I have a few that use these kinds of small locks that would have like 5.5mm ID keys, and without a tension cutout on the inner core, I find it impossible to tension and rotate these locks as I pick them beyond one position. I've seen that sparrows tension tool that works on the bigger tubular locks that tension the outside circle, but nothing of the sort for the miniature ones, is there a solution for this?

  • Mrcool100

    Any normal person can be locked out of their house and LPL walks up takes out his wallet, opens the door and then gives them a new key which he “happened” to have in his back pocket.

    Imagine you're outside of the cruiser and hear the suspect going "nothing on one. Little click out of two..."

  • BlockListed

    They should probably simply encrypt the data and transmit over 5g in the future to make tampering near impossible.

  • NobleNobbler

    A lawyer should know that no officer would ever be in trouble for "losing the flash memory" of his recording device(s).

    Of course he wonders how easy it is to open it, not how difficult.

    Dear LPL, my partner is a local locksmith in the area we live. His name is jake, and you are his favorite channel and he loves watching your videos, his birthday is today (12/13) and I think it would be amazing if you could shout him out on one of your videos! We love watching your videos and even if you don’t do a shout out we will still be subscribers lol have an awesome day

    Why are they only using one compact flash drive. They could easily fit 2 SD card slots in the same space. One as a protection against card failure. Most high end photography cameras have dual card slot to prevent such occurrence.

  • David Miscaviage

    Wondering if its magnetically shielded


      It uses flash media so not really a concern. If they used magnetic storage or tape then it would be shielded.

    surprised there's not more comments along the lines of: "are you seriously teaching cops to fuck with the recording mechanism so they can keep doing shady shit without it being recorded". I definitely wouldn't have posted this one. Even if there's many other checks and balances to keep the cops from getting away with something, I don't think they need to know how easy it is to pick this. That's just me.

  • evi1wombat

    Do you have any photos of the inside of the main body? Is there a second CF card there? Can I peek at the contents? Any interesting chip markings? The really interesting thing here is software security. Could we convince it to hop into a rogue access point and start dumping data? I wouldn't be surprised if there's an old x86 inside, or like, a DEC StrongARM running Linux or BSD.

LPL: this case makes no sense, this is a amateuristical attempt at a lawsuit. (I bought a new masterlock of very low quality security wise.) Judge: continue LPL: my client was indeed in the store but was there to buy something. Judge: i acknowledge this is possible(good click on one) Lpl: he was arrested in the parking lot, but had nothing on him. Judge: this doesnt disprove it. (Good click on 2, false set on 3) Lpl: the stolen merchandise was unfindable anywhere, it is far more likely someone else stole it! (Resetting pin 3) Judge: i see now, i have no choice but to release your client. (Good click on 3 and the cylinder is turning)

    Interesting that its a CF disk and not a SSD or other removable drive bay type config.

    • Mika Lindqvist
      Mika Lindqvist

      @DC Uplink And there is also more modern iterations of SSD trying to match the performance of CF, basically adding full-duplex communication and multiple data lanes, essentially hybrid of serial and parallel bus.

    • DC Uplink
      DC Uplink

      @Mika Lindqvist right, but compact flash isn't used much these days by most manufacturers. I say that and a quick check shows they still use CF but cameras now use a "CFexpress" as well as SD, weird.

    • Mika Lindqvist

      SSD has shitty write speed and bigger form factor... It would lag when recording longer video... I would assume those devices have minimal buffering...

    I doubt that switch has anything to do with the tamper evident button. If that button becomes displaced while an officer is on duty they'll have a lot of questions to answer when they get back to the station.

    I appreciate the fact you videos aren't littered with ads. I understand the whole idea behind ads. But when every 5 mins there's and ad that really messes up the whole user experience. I'm no lock smith or really have had an interest in locks. But your enthusiasm and interest in locks makes me interest in your craft. Great job at hitting the nail on the head! And I very seriously doubt I'm your target demographic!

    Hi my name is Graham I found you whilst looking for someone who can give an insight into picking a 1930’s key safe, I find you very easy listening and your explanation into the tools required are great. Have you yourself ever picked a key safe from the early half of the century. If so do you have any past videos. So far I’ve found on the internet only how to find the combination safes to crack. I look forward to possibly hearing from you. My email is tametiger00@yahoo.com thank you.
