A hacker has developed a device he says can act as a universal hotel key card to access millions of rooms around the world.

Using a home-made gadget, security researcher Cody Brocious said he had mimicked a master key card to gain access to any room with an Onity lock.

Details will be revealed at the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas this week.

Onity said it would look at Mr Brocious's work and address "any potential issues".
