Kryptonite U-Locks hacked with a Bic pen

Several of Kryptonite's top of the line bicycle U-Locks have a serious vulnerability. In fact I'm going to have to check mine tomorrow. I have 4 Kryptonite locks luckily they are of various styles. In fact I just bought a new one over the weekend, luckily it has a straight key. All in all I think only my two most expensive Kryptonite locks are vulnerable.

I've seen way to many posts on this subject. It's all over the place.

There are no less than four five different videos up on as of this writing.
Your brand new U-Lock is not safe -

Engaget did their own test and made posted the video. Kryptonite Evolution 2000 U- Lock hacked by a Bic pen - Engadget -

I'm just wondering if the traditional press is going to pick up on this. As of this writing there's not a single article on google news, but it's early perhaps we'll see something tomorrow.
