TSA Nude Body Scanners Loophole

Quote:
Controversial nude body scanners used at U.S. airports have come under fire again - after a blogger claimed he could easily smuggle explosives through them onto a plane.
Engineer Jonathan Corbett has published a video where he shows how he took a small metal case through two of the TSA's $1billion fleet in a special side pocket stitched into his shirt.
This is because, he suggests, the scanners blend metallic areas into the dark background - so if an object is not directly placed on the body, it will not show up on the scan.
The metallic box, he claims, would have set off an alarm had he passed through the old detecting system.
His revelation comes just weeks after Europe banned the 'airport strip-searches' over fears the X-ray technology could cause cancer.
MailOnline has decided not to publish the video because it details exactly how to circumvent the safety procedure - but it is freely available to watch online.
Corbett, standing in his living room as he speaks to the camera in the video for his 'TSA Out of Our Pants' blog, acknowledges the technique could be used by terrorists.
But he believes they would already know about the loophole, and took the steps to show 'how much danger the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is putting all us all in'.

Usual: In this TSA scan the metal items, located on the traveller's body, can clearly be seen as the body appears against a black background:


Contrast: In this image, the metallic object is not directly placed on the body and so does not show up on the scan as it blends into the background:


Corbett, who is suing the TSA for rolling out the scanners, explained how the loophole worked.
He said: 'Here are several images produced by TSA nude body scanners. You'll see that the search victim is drawn with light colours and placed on a black background in both images.
'In these samples, the individuals are concealing metallic objects that you can see as a black shape on their light figure. Again that’s light figure, black background, and black threat items.
'Yes that’s right, if you have a metallic object on your side, it will be the same colour as the background and therefore completely invisible to both visual and automated inspection.
'It can’t possibly be that easy to beat the TSA’s billion dollar fleet of nude body scanners, right? The TSA can’t be that stupid, can they? Unfortunately, they can, and they are.'
He said he put his theory to the test by buying a sewing kit to sew a pocket directly onto the side of his shirt. He then took a metallic case and walked through a backscatter X-ray at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport - all of which he recorded on film.
He said: 'While I’m not about to win any videography awards for my hidden camera footage, you can watch as I walk through the security line with the metal object in my new side pocket.
'My camera gets placed on the conveyor belt and goes through its own x-ray, and when it comes out, I’m through, and the object never left my pocket.
'Maybe a fluke? OK, let’s try again at Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport through one of the TSA’s newest machines: a millimetre wave scanner with automated threat detection built-in.
'With the metallic object in my side pocket, I enter the security line, my device goes through its own x-ray, I pass through, and exit with the object without any complaints from the TSA.'

The "loophole" has been tested. The scanners failed over and over again to detect metal objects.

Re: TSA Nude Body Scanners Loophole

The scanners are a scam that was put into place to make the head of the TSA or whoever the fuck it was rich...the guy who had them all put into airports also happened to invest in the company that makes them

Re: TSA Nude Body Scanners Loophole

Nice to see the loophole publicized. While controversial, the best security method is probably profiling and searches.

Before the Liberals beat me down on this, hear me out. I was profiled each and every time I went to Miami.

I traveled to Miami from Philly extensively. A transposition of a letter in my last name and it is Castro. Combine that with the fact that I dress like an Italian loan shark and each and every time I flew into Miami I was pulled and searched.
