We have already Prescott demanding action from the Police.

he near as damn it said - it is OK for the plebs not to get the service, but I have been in government and that makes me important - do something and find me a witch to burn whilst you are at it.
Cnuts.

Although, the NoW deserve to get a right royal kicking as well, peddling non stories sourced by illegal means. W@nkers.

For a bunch of people obsessed with snooping into every area of our daily lives, they show a marked reluctance to have the favour returned.

NOTW may be out of order but I must confess to a little schaden freud.

Must have been quite difficult, keeping track of which phone/residence to bug?
I think a lot of this comes from crooked insiders in the phone company. Its quite difficult to intercept and decrypt mobile calls these days and there are a limited number of places that can do it.

It's the only way to serve it, like revenge, a dish best tasted cold!

Pity Blair and Bushes phones hadn't been bugged during the build up to the Iraq War!

You will find that it is not the voice line then are hacking although this can be achieved with professional hardware that costs big bucks.

They are more likely hacking the phone through the vulnerable and poorly secure Bluetooth protocol. This is a much easy process in order to snoop on someone's mobile with the numerous bluetooth hacking tools available (bluesnarfer, redfang etc..). With these you can bypass the bluetooth password handshake and browse contacts, messages, call history etc.

All you need to do is get yourself a long range bluetooth dongle, a laptop, backtrack distro and a little patience and you will see how easy it is to do. Whoever has been hacking the phones only has to be in the vicinity of the phone such as sitting outside a house or standing close to your target. Even more vulnerable are those bluetooth car kits for handsfree - very scary as you can listen in on target conversations with ease.

So to summarise - not that hard to implement and most people with a bluethooth enabled device is a potential target.

PM me for more detailed instructions :D

This is definitely wrong and almost certainly illegal.

However, the government is intent on monitoring everything we do - storing records of our phone conversatsions, websites visited and facebook friends - so their reaction when the favour is returned is interesting.

I am sure it is probably illegal under some kind of obscure communications act.

Who knows though - that why maybe the police did not act straightaway.

And the Bluetooth range of the average mobile is what? Yes I can open a link far in excess of published parameters , but the phone can only transmit a limited distance.

Yes - i am sure location of target and hacker does come into it. An example being an innocent looking journo typing away on a laptop in the houe of commons canteen - what are they really doing??? Or even the public gallery?

This is the method that caught Becks with those saucy messages whilst he was in madrid.

Much more likely Cuddles. How many people change the passwords on their voicemail from the factory defaults of 0000, ****, or 1234?

It would also be a very good reason for the Police and CPS to shut up about the method.

It's all about hacking voicemail guys..
Yes Cuddles - this would be another approach.

At work our fraud dept is currently investigating the hacking of a teleware box that had routed 20k worth of calls to west africa. Investigations so far reveal that the voicemail method was how they got into the system.

News of the World eh? Murdoch's rag I believe. New Labour supporter I believe.

Whatever, who on earth would want to bug Prescott's 'phone? Unless, of course, they wanted to know how to be a useless, big, fat, semi-literate bullying oik.
