Apple's new AirTag tracker has already been hacked by security researcher Thomas Roth (stacksmashing).

The achievement was announced on Twitter yesterday.

Yesss!!! After hours of trying (and bricking 2 AirTags) I managed to break into the microcontroller of the AirTag!

Roth confirmed that it was possible to re-flash the microcontroller. To demonstrate this, he posted a video showing a modified AirTag that directs users to his website rather than found.apple.com.

Apple has yet to respond to the hack; however, it will likely attempt to address the vulnerability in a future update.

You can purchase an AirTag for $29 or just a four pack for $99.

And in exchange for his two bricked AirTags, he pockets 1.5 Million! Not a bad trade off, especially since Apple will know what to patch.
