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.
Thats why i love those Black hat conferences. Hacking for the greater good of mankind. I mean to be honest the NSA is already listening to everything i do(and i know its more than just verizon) so i mean if they want to listen to my boring conversations and text messages they surely can.
