Two security researchers from iSEC, Tom Ritter and Doug DePerry, have demonstrated the ability to hack into Verizon Wireless’ femtocells and spy on Verizon users with a simple wireless antenna. They say that they can intercept people’s phone calls, text messages, picture messages, and even data.
The team used a software vulnerability in the femtocells (which are readily available from Verizon) to perform the hack, although they have opted not to reveal how exactly how they did to prevent others from exploiting the same vulnerability.
