An impressive revelation was made at a hacker conference held in Hamburg. As has become known, there is a security gap in telecommunication systems that allows someone with the necessary knowledge and skills to trap a cell phone and listen to the device owner's conversations but also to read the text messages it sends and accepts.

The security gap was identified by a system codenamed SS7, a system used by many of the world's largest telecommunications companies (AT&T, Verizon, etc.) to route their customers' calls and messages.

A basic function of this system is to transfer the signal from one antenna to the next one when the owner of a mobile phone speaks while moving quickly if, for example, he is speaking while inside a car. Companies are understandably looking for ways to find a solution to the problem.
