Tonight I was watching panorama on BBC One and they were talking about many tech related topics and one of them was mobile phone hacking. The BBC briefly touched on how back in the 1980s people were very curious that mobile phones could be hacked.
In today’s modern age, mobile phones or smartphones have around 200x more features or functions compared to days of the first ever mobile phone. Most of the new Features require some sort wireless connectivity to function correctly.
The show repeated “can wireless hacking be prevented” time after time. I personally believe that it can never be prevented and the reason that is that with the right software it can intercept the wireless signals from any mobile wireless device.
Prevention is hard to put in place because you can put out a new standard to prevent it from happening, but with this said with the right software it could be broken very easy.
