Invite Government Into The Cellphone Fish Bowl

Long-Secret Stingray Manuals Detail How Police Can Spy On Phones by Sam Biddle.

Sam summarizes the high points from around 200 pages of current but never seen before Harris instruction manuals. Good show!

From the post:


Harris declined to comment. In a 2014 letter to the Federal Communications Commission, the company argued that if the owner’s manuals were released under the Freedom of Information Act, this would “harm Harris’s competitive interests” and “criminals and terrorist[s] would have access to information that would allow them to build countermeasures.”

Creating countermeasures?

Better, treat these documents as a basis for reverse-engineering Harris Stingrays into DIY kits.

False promises from known liars on use of “Stingray”s or “IMSI catchers are not going to combat government abuse of this technology.

Inviting governments to join the general public in the cellphone fish bowl might.

Can you imagine the reaction of your local sheriff, district attorney, judge, etc. when they are being silently tracked?

Not just in their routine duties but to mistresses, drug dens, prostitutes, porn parlors and the like?

We won’t have to wait long for the arrival of verifiable, secure cellphones.
