New Hack Uncovers Google Wallet PIN

Sure, having your cell phone contain all of your life’s tools is convenient. But the idea of storing credit cards on it via the likes of Google Wallet has always seemed a bit sketchy, especially when you consider how easy it is to lose a phone. Even with all of the security features… which can be circumvented rather easily.

Joshua Rubin of ZveloBlog devised Google Wallet Cracker, a program that simply finds the file on a phone that hides the PIN for unlocking Wallet. It requires a rooted Android phone to work , but the ease of its execution, as seen in the video above, is pretty damn impressive.
