Sneaky software can duplicate keys

"Professor Savage, 39, said his team at the University's Jacobs School of Engineering in San Diego found "thousands" of images of keys inadvertently posted on the photo-sharing site Flickr."
The key cutting devices are easily obtained in Australia and that's a worry. The second BIG worry is that software can translate digital images of keys into code which can be used to cut keys. I think we need to put computers away!! This has been a PhD assignment, but I think it's a bloomin' great wake up call for us all.
