Level 5 jbenson2 2,138 Posted December 19, 2014 Level 5 Share Posted December 19, 2014 This is worrisome. I wonder if the ability to read text messages could also include the ability to read text in the cellular Evernote Android app. Until the dust settles and the issue becomes more clear, I am deleting my Evernote Android app. It looks like Apple might be safe. Huge security flaw in mobile phone networks that could let hackers listen in on voice calls and read text messages revealed... even when cellular networks are using the most advanced encryption now available. OUCH! “It would strike me as a perfect spying capability, to record and decrypt pretty much any network… Any network we have tested, it works.” Those tests have included more than 20 networks worldwide, including T-Mobile in the United States. The other major U.S. carriers have not been tested, though Nohl and Engel said it’s likely at least some of them have similar vulnerabilities. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-switch/wp/2014/12/18/german-researchers-discover-a-flaw-that-could-let-anyone-listen-to-your-cell-calls-and-read-your-texts/ Link to comment
