watch the video here: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/60-minutes-h...our-phone/

it's insane. they are able to listen into live phone calls and much more.

Quote:Sharyn Alfonsi: If you just have somebody's phone number, what could you do?

Karsten Nohl: Track their whereabouts, know where they go for work, which other people they meet when-- You can spy on whom they call and what they say over the phone. And you can read their texts.

We wanted to see whether Nohl's group could actually do what they claimed -- so we sent an off-the-shelf iPhone from 60 Minutes in New York to Representative Ted Lieu, a congressman from California. He has a computer science degree from Stanford and is a member of the House committee that oversees information technology. He agreed to use our phone to talk to his staff knowing they would be hacked and they were. All we gave Nohl, was the number of the 60 Minutes iPhone that we lent the congressman.

german hacker guy said: everything is hackable.
and i believe him. damned.gif

i mean why wouldn't it be? everything is actually made to function in a certain way - if someone disturbs a small gear wheel inside a well-oiled machine it could lead to severe consequences which may affect the security of the whole system.

They don't even need your phone number, they just need to bump your phone (video).
