Was reported on Radio 4 lunchtime today. First I'd heard of it.

It's been being reported in the computer press for a long time now.
Perhaps it will be a year or two before the mainstream press picks up on the fact that GSM mobile calls and text's can intercepted by anyone willing to shell out about £500, but give it a year and it'll be £200.

Note to self: Stop clicking on Midnight Caller links as is does not show the source of the information but take me to a another forum.  Angry
