Security Flaw in Locks Puts Millions of Hotel Rooms at Risk

Researchers have revealed a critical security flaw in Dormakaba’s Saflok electronic RFID locks used in over three million hotel rooms worldwide. The exploit allows attackers to clone keycards, granting access to any room. While a fix is being rolled out, it’s uncertain how quickly impacted hotels will upgrade their systems.

The vulnerability affects various Saflok lock series and poses challenges in detection and mitigation. Despite efforts to address the issue, complete resolution remains elusive due to the widespread deployment of affected locks and associated infrastructure.
