Cellphone Intrusion

about the privacy intrusion issue with cellphones

  • most articles on the web seem to refer to case where the FBI sneaked a 'roving' cell phone in the hands of mafia dudes they are keeping an eye on (and i wonder if getting the battery out of a fbi-refubished phone would prevent being wiretapped :-/

(on the fbi case - found a blog/article on indymedia on the issue,
but it's not touching any solid ground/science (linking to cnet article hans found)

  • but there's also some talk about malware running on samsung & symbian devices - if anyone finds more info about this ? i'm gonna setup a wiki page
