CELL CALLS BEING INTERCEPTED ACROSS US

qwz7xgfyiiaozmsls0og

Popular Science has recently reported on how ESD America has found unknown cell phone call interceptors across the United States with its CryptoPhone 500. Most of the towers have been found near military bases. The interceptors take the cell phone down to 2G, which bypasses a cell’s security functions. Most phones never register the change, which ESD America found out by testing the areas.

The NSA has the ability to intercept the calls, other agencies and local law enforcement have are required to get warrants. Here, via Popular Science, is how widespread this has become.

“Interceptor use in the U.S. is much higher than people had anticipated,” Goldsmith says.  “One of our customers took a road trip from Florida to North Carolina and he found 8 different interceptors on that trip.  We even found one at South Point Casino in Las Vegas.”

Who is running these interceptors and what are they doing with the calls?  Goldsmith says we can’t be sure, but he has his suspicions.

“What we find suspicious is that a lot of these interceptors are right on top of U.S. military bases.  So we begin to wonder – are some of them U.S. government interceptors?  Or are some of them Chinese interceptors?” says Goldsmith.  “Whose interceptor is it?  Who are they, that’s listening to calls around military bases?  Is it just the U.S. military, or are they foreign governments doing it?  The point is: we don’t really know whose they are.”

A little later in the article, Popular Science tells how easily phone calls are intercepted.

Whenever he wants to test out his company’s ultra-secure smart phone against an interceptor, Goldsmith drives past a certain government facility in the Nevada desert.  (To avoid the attention of the gun-toting counter-intelligence agents in black SUVs who patrol the surrounding roads, he won’t identify the facility to Popular Science).  He knows that someone at the facility is running an interceptor, which gives him a good way to test out the exotic “baseband firewall” on his phone.  Though the baseband OS is a “black box” on other phones, inaccessible to manufacturers and app developers, patent-pending software allows the GSMK CryptoPhone 500 to monitor the baseband processor for suspicious activity.  

So when Goldsmith and his team drove by the government facility in July, he also took a standard Samsung Galaxy S4 and an iPhone to serve as a control group for his own device.

”As we drove by, the iPhone showed no difference whatsoever.  The Samsung Galaxy S4, the call went from 4G to 3G and back to 4G.  The CryptoPhone lit up like a Christmas tree.”

Though the standard Apple and Android phones showed nothing wrong, the baseband firewall on the Cryptophone set off alerts showing that the phone’s encryption had been turned off, and that the cell tower had no name – a telltale sign of a rogue base station.   Standard towers, run by say, Verizon or T-Mobile, will have a name, whereas interceptors often do not.

And the interceptor also forced the CryptoPhone from 4G down to 2G, a much older protocol that is easier to de-crypt in real-time.  But the standard smart phones didn’t even show they’d experienced the same attack.  

“If you’ve been intercepted, in some cases it might show at the top that you’ve been forced from 4G down to 2G.  But a decent interceptor won’t show that,” says Goldsmith.  “It’ll be set up to show you [falsely] that you’re still on 4G.  You’ll think that you’re on 4G, but you’re actually being forced back to 2G.”

There are many questions that people should have about this. One of the biggest is how much this harms national security, as there are so many outside military bases.
