Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan Complains

Mobile Phones Can Be Used for Eavesdropping

In September I mentioned that Michael Hickins had reported on phone spoofing with cell phones to avoid sanctions for calling to Iran.

Now The Economist reports that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan complains that “they eavesdropped on me for six years.”

"They" may possibly be the Turkish Justice Ministry.  Have something sensitive to say?  Take the battery out of your mobile phone, as Bruce Schneier has been saying for years.

(Check that link in The Economist before 11/19/2010.  After a year all Economist content is only available to paid subscribers.)
