Hacker Gets Into Fancy Airline Lounges With A Fake Boarding Pass App

Ever fancied waiting in the first class lounge while waiting for a delayed flight. However, to enjoy the luxuries and the comfort of a swanky airport lounge, you need to have a first class ticket.

But not for Przemek Jaroszewski. Jaroszewski, head of Poland’s Computer Emergency Response Team and a frequent flyer with gold status uses a custom Android app that gives a boarding pass-tricking QR code, which allows him access to the first class lounge.

So, how did he do it? It all started when he was not able to gain access at Warsaw’s airport due to an error with an automated boarding pass reader. Like any innovative hacker, Jaroszewski created a simple Android app that generates a valid QR code based on fake credentials he enters.
