Motorcycle Gang Busted For Hacking and Stealing Over 150 Jeep Wranglers Published on May 31, 2017 at 02:05PM What stands apart is how the gang operated. This involved gang members getting the Jeep Wrangler VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), accessing a proprietary Jeep database, and getting two codes needed to create a duplicate replacement key. Gang members used one code to cut the key, while they used the second code while stealing the car, connecting a handheld programming computer to the car, and programming the replacement key’s chip, synchronising it to the car’s dashboard. All of this took under 2 minutes and was also possible because Jeep Wranglers allow thieves to pop the hood from the outside of the car and disable the alarm even before using their non-authenticated replacement key.

Officials say that al l the database queries for the stolen VIN codes came from a Jeep dealer in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

Court documents don’t say if the dealer cooperated or gang members hacked its system. The motorcycle gang’s name was Hooligans and the sub-unit that stole the Jeeps was named Dirty 30.
