*"A German technology researcher on Wednesday showed global mobile makers
and technology firms how General Packet Radio
easily be tapped, intercepted, and decrypted with an average mobile
phone and a few applications. According to the New York Times, Karsten Nohl,
a computer engineer and mobile security researcher, demonstrated to fellow
researchers gathered to attend Chaos Communication
a Berlin-based hackers event, how to intercept the voice or data messages
sent between mobile
GPRS easily, owing to weak protection provided by mobile network
carriers for data information. Nohl, in collaboration with his colleague
Luca Melette, tapped the information within a radius of five
a seven-year-old inexpensive mobile phone from Motorola."
