Remote car door locks – code can be intercepted

Making the web rounds is notice that there is an intercepting device thieves are using to clone car security codes when car doors are locked using the key-chain locking device.  Thieves sit a distance away (such as in a shopping mall complex) waiting for the victim to remotely lock their car and walk away.  The interceptor can then unlock the car with the stolen code.

Advice is to use the lock button on your car upon exiting, which does not send a security code through the airwaves.
