    Cell phone voicemail easily hacked

    They got Paris Hilton's contacts, and could get yours, too


    The attack is simple, according to Bob Egan of MobileCompetency.com, who
    wrote the report. Most cell phone providers offer a service called "skip
    passcode," which allows mobile subscribers to enter their cell phone
    voicemail and select other administrative options without entering a numeric
    password. Callers are sometimes told the service is safe, because cell phone
    providers ensure the call is initiated from the handset owned by the
    consumer -- making the password unnecessary.

    But Eagan discovered that services use caller ID to authenticate the cell
    phone, and months ago, hackers learned how to spoof, or "trick" the caller
    ID system. Using such a service, a hacker can dial the mobile account
    holder's telephone system and immediately access their voice mail and other
    services.

    Somebody said he didnt "cared" . Yeah, you're not "famous" like Paris
    here ...and you said you don't care if someone would 'steal' your
    contacts...no, not the lens contacts. And what if...I will probably get
    anxious from this...i got a lot of secrets numbers .
