Seventeen fake cellphone towers were discovered across the U.S. last week, according to a report in Popular Science.

Quote:Rather than offering you cellphone service, the towers appear to be connecting to nearby phones, bypassing their encryption, and either tapping calls or reading texts.

Ya don't say...

If by aliens you mean Obama, then I would agree. He's an illegal alien.

The SOB's in the WH are doing everything they can to gather intelligence against us citizens.

I'm not convinced it's the govt at all. They already have access to any information they desire, doesn't make much economic sense to build redundant systems.
I'm almost more concerned about what they may be transmitting as receiving. 13.gif

Since they are near military installations they could be foreign govts listening in on military personnel conversations.

Quote:Some devices can not only capture calls and texts, but even actively control the phone and send spoof texts.

That should be a cause for concern for military security...spoof texts. spock.gif
