Mythbusters Gagged by Credit Card Companies

I am very interested to see where this story goes: Adam Savage of Mythbusters, while speaking at a conference, revealed that the producers considered doing a show revealing the flaws of the RFID tags in credit cards. Apparently the lawyers got Discovery to back down from even producing the show. Credit card companies don’t want you to know how flawed and insecure the embedded RFID tags really are. Anybody can read them with readily available equipment. Some of the issues are presented at RSA Laboratories.
