Another day, another Snowden dump: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/12/04 ... _networks/

So yeah, GSM hackery afoot (which I'm pretty sure most were aware of by now! :mrgreen:)

NRT did a quick analysis and is guessing they have complete access to Vodafone as they say they can get in to 43% of NZs mobile users and Vodafone have 42% market share and other small players about 1% (Think of Snap/Orcon who offer mobile but just rent capacity off Vodafone).

He makes a very good point that the main reason we have the GCSB is to prevent foreign powers from infiltrating our commercial and government communications in this manner.

Well if they want any of my stuff it will boring for them.

Got 150Kg of Ammonium Nitrate just recently as I have done for years (fertiliser) and this time got a visit from the Fuzz wanting to know what I was doing with it. Told 'em I was going to blow up the Town Hall. They were not amused! :lol:
