Hacker Listens in on iPhone Call Using Just Its Phone Number [Video]

A German hacker in Berlin has demonstrated the ability to listen in on an iPhone call using just its phone number, reports 60 Minutes. Karsten Nohl, who has a doctorate in computer engineering from the University of Virginia, was able to listen to U.S. Congressman Ted Lieu’s phone conversation from a computer in Germany.We wanted to see whether Nohl’s group could actually do what they claimed — so we sent an off-the-shelf iPhone from 60 Minutes in New York to Representative Ted Lieu, a congressman from California. He has a computer science degree from Stanford and is a member of the House committee that oversees information technology. He agreed to use our phone to talk to his staff knowing they would be hacked and they were. All we gave Nohl, was the number of the 60 Minutes iPhone that we lent the congressman.Share Article:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Email,   Reddit,   Digg,   Delicious,   StumbleUponFollow iClarified:Facebook,   Twitter,   LinkedIn,   Google Plus,   Newsletter,   App Store,   YouTubeAdvertise Here
