DENVER — The British hacking scandal is raising questions about just how vulnerable our own phones are, and just how easy it is to hack into them.
Denver computer forensics expert Charles Tendell says hacking into someone’s voicemail is as easy as guessing their personal identification numbers or PINs.
“Think about how simple a 4-digit code is to guess,” he says. “Easily guessable are all ones, all zeros, all fours, birth dates, street addresses. It’s all information that is that freely available in different places.”
