Cell Phone Spy Extracts Deleted Texts, Data
A company in New York is marketing a product it says allows spouses, parents, employers, and others to recover deleted data from mobile phones and read it on PCs. It works on many, but not all, cell phones. [via Information Week]
"BrickHouse Security sells a small, portable SIM card reader that it says retrieves deleted messages. Users can remove a SIM card, put it in the $150 Cell Phone Spy, and plug the reader into a USB port. The data transfers to PCs. The company claims its reader is the only one that can access deleted messages."
