    So i heard from a friend that a buddy of his truck was broken into. The cops told him there is no evidence of forced entry but there is a new device "code grabber" which is what was most likely used to break into his car. The police officer told him that a thief uses this "code grabber" when ever people use a remote to lock the door of their car, the code grabber intercepts the code and that way the thief can easily unlock the vehicle.

    Has anybody else heard of this?
    I wonder if after market alarms will stop this "code grabber"?

    Yeh it's been used for a long time already! They even use it on people's garage door openers to get in when owners leave

    pretty sure the python 991 I just had installed changes the code everytime so thieves cant use this on it. I think it's called rolling codes or something?

    Garage door openers are way beyond this with 'rolling code' technology.

    it been around for a long time hell you used to be able to get one for Jailbroke Iphones.

    and it will disarm your alarm if it arms and disarms with the same code that locks and unlocks your car door

    From Viper's technology website:

    SuperCodeSuperCode is the technology that defines the functionality of the Responder LE and the intelligence that drives its advanced features. Its protocol encompasses software-based system signal encryption (replacing hardware-based Clone Safe Code-Hopping). Multi-car operation is designed into the SuperCode protocol, so users will have all of the possible operations for two cars controllable by one remote. 2-way confirmations and notifications of many different events and commands have been designed into SuperCode, so all SuperCode-enabled 2-way systems can tell the user more about their vehicle than any other system on the market.

    In military communication it's called frequency hopping. They've been using that for about 30 years now.
