Los Angeles PD Spy Tool Being Used to Tap Your Cell Phone?

StingRay (a surveillance tool) is Secretly Being Used Without Warrants?

In today’s uncertain times it seems privacy, although important, is taking a bit of a back seat when it comes to wanting to know what we need to know. Up until recently we mostly thought that all of the high tech spying stuff was done by the NSA or maybe the FBI. But now it seems as though everyone is getting into the act.  I guess you don’t have to feel all that guilty anymore about monitoring your kids cell phone activities.

“When you consider the scoundrels the FBI chases down every year — terrorists and serial killers and badass drug kingpins — David Rigmaiden has to be one of the dullest on the list. He’s currently in federal custody in Arizona, charged in a long-running scam that netted millions from bogus tax returns.

Still, the Rigmaiden case is being watched closely because of a tool the FBI used to catch him. The device, called a StingRay, would seem right at home in any spy flick.

Suitcase-sized and portable, StingRays are used by law enforcement to track mobile phones in real time. The device electronically impersonates a cellphone tower and dupes the mobile phone into connecting through its own antennae.

Documents obtained by L.A. Weekly through the Freedom of Information Act show that the Los Angeles Police Department is quietly using the StingRay. (Police in Miami, Fort Worth and Gilbert, Ariz., also are known to have the devices.)

LAPD refuses to discuss how it uses the powerful tool, perhaps copying the FBI’s playbook, which argued in the Rigmaiden case that revealing too many details would cause serious harm to future investigations.

The department, through a spokesperson, refused to comment on the device, despite repeated requests from the Weekly. Through the department’s Discovery Unit, which handles requests from the public and media under the California Public Records Act, LAPD also declined to reveal any information on how the devices are used.

How Not to Get Busted Installing Spyware On a Cell Phone

Espionage software isn’t just for Chinese intelligence agents and Eastern European identity theft rings. A miniature Reviewsspyware industry also serves jealous spouses, worried parents, even overbearing bosses. Luckily for the targets of those small-time spies, however, it turns out that consumer-grade snoopware is much, much shoddier than the professional variety.

At the Defcon hacker conference this weekend, forensics expert and former Pentagon contractor Michael Robinson plans to give a talk on how to detect a range of commercial spyware, programs like MobileSpy and FlexiSpy that offer to let users manually install invisible software on targets’ phones to track their location, read their text messages and listen in on their calls, often for hundreds of dollars in service fees.

Robinson tested five commercial spying tools on five different devices–four Android devices and an iPhone. In most cases, he found that uncovering the presence of those spyware tools is often just a matter of digging through a few subdirectories to find a telltale file–one that often even specifies identifying details of the person doing the spying. “I was shocked to find so many glitches, and so much data that allowed attribution,” says Robinson. “If I’m going to be spying on someone, I don’t want them to know my email address and phone number.” Read full story

If you are determined to investigate the mobile phone activities of someone close to you it might be a better idea to track them using booth technology.  Today almost all cell phone activities can be tracked via a simple blue tooth app that is only installed on your phone.  Click here for demo.

Is it ever OK to spy on your partner’s electronic communications?

The temptation for spying on your partner can sometimes be a little overwhelming.

spying on your partner

“What if your partner ran out for a second and left his or her e-mail or text messages open? Would you read them?

According to a new survey by OurTime.com, “33% of Americans aged 18 and over, believe it’s OK to snoop through a significant other’s text messages, voicemails and email if ‘bad behavior’ is suspected.” This begs the question: Do two wrongs ever make a right?

Is it ever OK to spy on your partner?

Spying or snooping is considered a big faux pas in relationships, yet many people end up infringing on a partner’s privacy to catch a glimpse of what they think is going on. Among older generations, people kept diaries and there was a strict code of privacy surrounding them. It was never okay to read another person’s private diary. In today’s world of electronic communications, email and text messages may not be seen as private as a diary. But, the same rules of privacy apply to our electronic communications.

Whether we refer to a person’s private diary or electronic messages, snooping constitutes a betrayal of trust, and trust is an essential ingredient in any relationship. If you feel the urge to snoop, you should ask yourself whether you want the relationship to last. If you do, breaking trust by snooping adds negative baggage to the relationship, even though you may suspect bad behavior. Two wrongs don’t make a right when it comes to relationships.

In addition, what if you spy and don’t find the suspected bad behavior? Do you then reveal what you’ve done? Most likely, you keep it a secret, and that’s what you were concerned about in the first place.

Dealing with the temptation to snoop

If you’re tempted to snoop, here are some strategies that may help you.

Do some self-inquiry first. Be honest. How do you feel about yourself? Spying on a partner is sometimes a sign of insecurity. You may feel that you are not good enough for your partner and that it is only a matter of time before he/she leaves you. This is more about you, not your partner.”
