At the 27th Chaos Communication Congress (27C3) hacker conference, security researchers demonstrated how open source software on a number of revamped, entry-level cell phones can decrypt and record mobile phone calls in the GSM network. Using a normal laptop and a homemade monitoring device, team leader Karsten Nohl of Berlin's Security Research Labs explained that GSM mobile communications can be decrypted in "around 20 seconds." He said his team was able to record and playback entire conversations in plain text.
