http://www.pressgazette.co.uk/article/100806/nows_goodman_charged_with_intercepting_phone_merssages Couldn't locate a thread on ARRSE relating to this - if there is one, MOD's please delete this thread. Following the guilty plea by Clive Goodman yesterday in relation to this story. Would ARRSEr's like to comment on the offence itself from a privacy / technical perspective. Please don't comment on the case itself, PartTimePongo will be only too happy to remind us of our responsibilities here, so no slating those two wonderful organs that Clive Goodman wrote for, plenty on here already! Is this the "thin end of the wedge" as far as intercepting telephone messaging is concerned? Perhaps a RSIGS might like to offer a few knowledgeable words on how the intercept has been done, and what steps could be taken to prevent this in future. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6194988.stm?ls "Complaints by three staff at Clarence House sparked the police inquiry which was widened to examine whether other public figures had had calls intercepted." I guess that a wide range of people could be targeted in this way, what chance that military mobiles could be accessed in a similar way?
