German privacy hackers develop RFID zapper

German privacy hackers develop RFID zapper: "A GROUP of German privacy hackers have come up with a portable device that can wipe a passive RFID-Tag permanently.

While it is known that RFID tags could be wiped, it usually took some fairly cumbersome microwave gear to get the job done, and the result could damage whatever the tag was installed on.

But, according to the group’s website here, two developers have managed to make a functioning prototype and produce plans that everyone can use to build their own RFID-Zapper.
