Hackers access cellphones

Date: December 13, 2006

City hackers have trained their guns on cellphone service providers. And more than one of them could be at work to make a point.

Six cellphone users have recently filed complaints with police about data stored in their handsets being accessed without authorisation. They have requested their cellphone service providers to provide more data security.

Each of the hacking victims received an SMS stating: “We have proved how unsafe your data is by accessing the server of your service provider without authorisation. We haven’t disclosed your personal details, including the text messages, to anyone. We have done it so that the service provider initiates security measures to protect their subscribers’ secrecy.”
