UAVs listening to your cell phone calls

2011-09-23 15:26:23.971152+00 by Dan Lyke 1 comments

Forbes: Flying Drone Can Crack Wi-Fi Networks, Snoop On Cell Phones describes the little UAV that the folks at The Rabbit-Hole have been putting together. It does the usual Wi-Fi snooping, and can present itself as a GSM cell tower which then routes calls normally (using VOIP to the T-Mobile network), listening in on cell phone calls.

Holy crap, this is great.

My friend Adam and I have been kicking around the idea of a tethered dirigible which would aircrack available wifi base stations, then multiplex and broadcast as "PirateNet" or some such. We are swimming in password-protected wifi here in Seattle, bandwidth everywhere locked up for no good reason.
