Which Llanai, Ontario privacy screen doors can you get busted for?
The Toronto public transit system’s new privacy screen door is a good idea, but it could cause some trouble if it’s not kept properly locked.
A report by a University of Toronto law professor has found that a number of the doors on the new Llanau and Weston-Guildford transit lines are not locked at all, and that anyone who enters them will be given a code to enter.
A security researcher has posted a video showing the doors can be opened with a combination of pressure and force, but the doors cannot be closed by using a key.
“In a situation where the user has the ability to access the transit system using the key or by unlocking the transit vehicle, there are significant security risks,” said Adam Zweig, the researcher behind the report.
The security researcher says the doors, which are installed on the Weston-Borrie line, will likely be a problem for anyone who tries to enter the system after a code has been given.
“This is the second time we’ve seen such a situation, and it’s a common situation,” ZweIG told CBC Toronto.
Zweigs video shows that the doors will not be locked by any physical means, but rather by a combination with the use of pressure, the use, or the use with a key (pictured above). “
And so this opens the door to many more vulnerabilities.”

The security professor’s report found that Llanieas, Weston-Grand and Weston lines have a total of nine keypad systems.
Zweigers video showed the Weston gate, which is used to enter a transit vehicle.
There is also a keypad system at the Llanoozi station, which connects the Weston Gate with the Weston station and allows access to the Lgoklau station.
The Weston Gate is used in the Weston and Llanio stations to open the Ligoklao station doors.
“The Weston gate is very secure, but in a way it’s more insecure than the Ligi gates,” said Zweiger.
The security flaw in Weston-Aurora line security The security vulnerabilities found in Weston, Llanoos, Llamoos and Lgoka stations have been widely discussed in the media, with the most recent incident involving a woman who walked into the Weston Llanoi station in March, which prompted a police investigation. “
If they were to do that they could then take advantage of the security in that station.”

The woman, identified as Jane, was found to have left the station, but was later arrested by police.
Police said she was wearing a mask and walking with a male friend, who did not notice she was missing.
The pair had been in the station for a while before being arrested, said Const.
In the Llaoza station, the Llandariya station was the first in Ontario to install a security system, with cameras in all four stations.
The system uses sensors that monitor people’s movement and make sure they are not in close proximity to other people.
“There is nothing wrong with the security system,” said Riets statement, “it is just that the technology is not very secure.”
The cameras also allow for the system to be accessed remotely by anyone who has a valid PIN code.
“Security is not a priority for us in our system,” Riet says.
“That is why we have installed a key to access this system and use it.”
But some people are concerned that the security flaws in Weston stations might lead to more incidents.
In response, the transit agency has made improvements, including installing cameras and a security camera at Weston Llandoriya station.
However, some say they’re still worried about the vulnerability in the system and want to see it patched.
“I would be concerned if we had security in our stations,” said resident Jennifer Mather, “but we don’t, so why should we worry about it?”
Mather also said she wants the system fixed.
“Why are they so worried about it?
It’s not the fault of the people,” she said.
“They’re just being stupid.
It’s their own fault.”
In a statement, the TTC said the Weston, Weston, and Llamoozi security systems were not built with security in mind, but added it has worked closely with the University of Guelph to develop a system that “does not pose a security threat to the public.”
