REP. TED LIEU's PHONE IS HACKED FOR CBS 60 MINUTES SECURITY REPORT


RE
P. TED LIEU's PHONE IS HACKED FOR CBS 60 MINUTES SECURITY REPORT

Online at CBS News 60 Minutes, Congressman Ted Lieu discusses cybersecurity and encryption with reporter Sharyn Alfonsi after his cellphone was hacked to demonstrate a security flaw in the global mobile network.


Last year, the president of the United States called me on my cellphone. 
And we discussed some issues. 
So if the hackers were listening in, they would know that phone conversation. And that's immensely troubling.”

You cannot have 300-some million Americans--and really, right, the global citizenry--be at risk 
of having their phone conversations intercepted with a known flaw, simply because some intelligence agencies 
might get some data.  That is not acceptable.”
