New App Detects Government Stingray Cell Phone Trackers

kipple requires root access and will only run on Qualcomm (71 comments)

"This app requires root access and will only run on devices with Qualcomm chipset."

That's not "for android". That's playing a Qualcomm trick with the baseband.

I also wonder if a better way might be (but I'm speculating here) to use the measured distance from the nearest cell tower (called Timing Advance), as in http://stackoverflow.com/a/137... - and couple it with a public database of known celltowers locations to spot recent "additions".

* 2002-11-24 20:35:08 Moshe Bar, Andrea Arcangeli about linux clustering (articles,news) (accepted) ....I wonder what's going on.. unfortunately the event will happen in 2 days. I hope the posters will get it on quickly.

I'm writing the journal entry "just in case" the story gets posted AFTER the event (which would be bad).


karma whoring

kipple kipple writes  |  more than 12 years ago

hey, today I reached karma 50. thought it could be cool to see it, say, in 30 years from now, when I'll be the last linux user in my block and/or I'll have been escaped to some island in the Pacific to avoid paying copyright royalities on 50-years old software.

oh well, merry 50-karma day to myself.
