Hackers homing in on Cellular Phones

Filed under

This story kinda hits home for me as I now work on a computer all day for cingular wireless (formerly AT&T in our branch). I guess this is why call volume has been increasing steadily lately. Here's the full story on Reuter's slow ass site.


I read a story today that some car computers were getting infected with virus from cell phones utilizing bluetooth. Mainly the virus was disabling security features on those luxury cars.

No kiddin?

Man, those hackers have no shame. Don't need a slim jim to jack cars anymore, just a pda!

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?
