For their part, the TSA seems rather nonplussed about this leak -- according to Mike England, a TSA spokesman who spoke to The Intercept, "The reported ability to create keys for TSA-approved suitcase locks from a digital image does not create a threat to aviation security." As England went on to say, "These consumer products are ‘peace of mind’ devices, not part of TSA’s aviation security regime."
Cool story, bro. Maybe stop using these locks?
