This Hack Tool Uses SS7 Flaw to Trace Call, Location Of Every Single Mobile Phone

This tool uses SS7 Flaw to let you spy on mobile phone calls, messages, and user location

The latest news only confirms the theory that Israeli firms are creating a position in the spying and surveillance industry with their ground-breaking and wide-ranging products. The latest news only confirms the theory that Israel is going places as far as digital surveillance is concerned.

Established in 1993, an Israeli firm Ability has developed really amazing software, which has been named Ability Unlimited Interception System to provide unlimited surveillance chances to law enforcement in the US so that criminal activity could be kept at bay, it has been reported. Currently, this system can recognize calls, texts, and location of almost any mobile phone around the world and is available for US$20 million. It is also being guessed that it is quite an accomplishment by the Israeli firm to get it for this price and the amazing skills of the system.

Launched in November 2015, the system’s asking price is the maximum rate while it may cost less if the number of targets and customers that are needed to be snooped upon is less.

Forbes reports that: “All a ULIN customer requires is the target’s phone number or the IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity), the unique identifier for an individual mobile device. Got those? Then boom – you can spy on a target’s location, calls, and texts.”

This new system outdoes all other currently available espionage technologies, as the people behind Ability’s formation are specialists in the off-air interception of satellite and cellular communications.

Also, this new system is very effective as it can seize all types of mobile phone traffic including GSM, LTE, and MTS without needing the approval of the mobile service provider or being in close proximity of the device.

However, how does this system carry out such extraordinary accomplishments?

It actually abuses an error present in the Signalling System No. 7 or SS7, which is the international telecom standard that demonstrates how information is swapped across digital networks from a public switched telephone networks (PSTN) for cell phones. The “Signalling Points” of SS7 and the nodes that use out-of-band signaling to help services like call forwarding.

A yet unknown third party is accountable for licensing this vulnerability for Ability and providing access or information about the SS7 fault. Therefore, by simply tapping into the targeted phone, it is easily possible to intercept any mobile phone for law enforcement.

However, this latest installment in inspiring fool-proof spying campaigns for carrying out criminal investigations has again kindled dispute on the breach of user privacy through the use of such software.
