Comment: They're just reprogramming the IMEI and IMSI... (Score 4, Interesting) 181

by admiralfrijole (#28044713) Attached to: Investigators Replicate Nokia 1100 Banking Hack
from tfa: That application allows a hacker to decrypt the Nokia 1100's firmware, Becker said. Then, the firmware can be modified and information such as the IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identity) number can be changed as well as the IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity) number, which allows a phone to register itself with an operator.

Uh... this ability is hardly unique to this device, I have a feeling there's something else they're not telling us.

+ - Adium code forked over Leopard Dispute->

Submitted by admiralfrijole
admiralfrijole (712311) writes "Earlier this week, several people opened tickets against Adium crashes occurring in the latest Leopard Beta, which started a veritable firestorm of controversy that included discussions of GPL violations, disabling features, and quite a spat across no less than 3 different IRC channels.

Today, one of the people who filed a ticket and was told that it would not be fixed until Leopard ships announced on his blog that he, and several other unnamed individuals, have forked Adium to create A.org."
