The <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/company-listing/transportation-security-administration-tsa.html" class="blue_bold">Transportation Security Administration</a> (TSA) has taken backscatter x-ray machines out of U.S. airports because of changing requirements, although they are still used internationally and at other venues, such as courthouses, prisons, etc. Controversy has plagued the devices since they were introduced in 2009, including concerns about safety and privacy.</p> <p>But how well do they work? More to the point, could a group of intrepid terrorists figure out a way to outsmart them? Several U.S. scientists from three universities decided to find out, and their results include a list of multiple ways to get around the detection provided by backscatter x-ray machines.
