Someone Karsten Nohl (Karsten Nohl) from California said that he managed to crack the encryption algorithm used to encrypt the calls of the vast majority of mobile phones. But this code has been used for 21 years.
The 28-year-old hacker spoke about his achievement at a conference in Berlin Chaos Communication Congressshowing how he does it. Prior to this, there was no information about such hacks from anywhere.
Reaction in the mobile world has been mixed. Some experts began to look for improved methods of protection. Others felt that the threat was exaggerated - the method proposed by Nol is still not so simple and not everyone will be able to use it. Well, if they want to listen to you, then no codes will help.
