Default Kwa: Marshal Service using small aircraft that act as cell phone towers to intercept calls

How the US government is using fake cell phone towers aboard planes to spy on American mobile phones... and scoop up data from tens of thousands of innocent people in the process

  • A U.S Marshal Service program collecting data became operational in 2007
  • The agency operates Cessna aircraft from five major airports
  • Locations are chosen because they cover most of the American population
  • Devices, called 'dirtboxes,' trick cellphones into reporting unique registration information
