MIT Students Restrained From Answering MBTA Claims

An update on yesterday’s post, MBTA Makes MIT Subway Hack Guide Famous.

The MBTA issued a statement to CNET which tells their view of how MIT students approached shared information with the organization about flaws in its fare card system.

Now Dan Grabauskas, the general manager of the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority, has told the Boston Globe,

“There have been claims in the past that have been made against our card or other cards, and, happily, they’ve all been able to be dismissed or dealt with.”

Due to the temporary restraining order obtained by the MBTA, the students are unable to respond in the public debate over whether the MBTA uses adequate security measures.

Fortunately, the EFF is not so restrained; you can read their excellent analysis and advocacy here.
