Phone Bug

In the past few years the features of the computers and the cell phones have become almost identical. With the new smartphones you can do almost everything you can do on your computer; such as checking your e-mails, brows the net, read news, take pictures, make videos and a lot more. Every new release offers new and more existing feature, and it never ends.

Most, if not all new features are available thanks to the option of connecting to the internet which enables you to exchange different data. Every cell phone company is now focused on creating a cell phone that will act as a mini computer and enable you to do everything with the click of a button. The main purpose of the cell phones is no longer to call or text, but to do the exact same things you can do on your computer.

What Do The Computer Virus And The Cell Phone Bug Have In Common?

Since computers and cell phones are now very similar in their features and functions it is logical that they share the same language, thus share the same problems. Consequently the viruses that used to infect the computers are now infecting the cell phones in the form of bugs. The same companies that created the viruses so they can hack into people's computers are now behind the cell phone bug which they use as a tool to eavesdrop on people but can be found via a bug sweep.

These companies, or individuals, are very good at what they do and they can practically hack into any device which is connected to the net, regardless whether you are using that device to access the Internet at that particular moment. In additions, cell phones are an easy target, simply because people don't bother to install any security features, not knowing that this careless behavior is exactly what hackers need.

Once hackers have detected the flaws of the system, they have developed a cell phone virus, or a phone bug, which was called "Cell-Finity". Since then the phone bug has evolved any many different versions have appeared but the method of function remained the same. The hacker, or the eavesdropper, uses a secret access code to call the target cell phone which was previously infected with the bug. The phone doesn't ring, the display remains dark, and there is no record of the call ever being made, but the microphone is on and records everything that happens. The phone bug can help the hacker eavesdrop on sounds that are within 10 feet from the infected cell phone and you will never have a clue that you are being listened to.

The bug is a computer program and it spreads in the same way as viruses spread on the computer. Once infected, your cell phone will give out not only your conversation but can also spy on every text message you send or receive. The worst part is that even if you don't use the text messaging the phone can be bugged only because the cell phone has the feature of sending messages. How convenient!

So basically there is no way you can find out you are being spied on, until the person who is spying on you decides to put a price on the information they have.

Too Scary To Be True?

Unfortunately it is! And the companies that offer these services are proud of the work they do. In their advertisement you can see how openly they offer you the opportunity to spy on people. These bugs are so easily accessible that anyone who is willing to pay for this can eavesdrop on whoever they want and get their hands on information that can ruin someone's life.

These spy bugs have also become popular with many government agencies that now use a similar technology to eavesdrop on people of interest and obtain crucial information that usually took years of careful planning and complex software to be able to get near.
