  1. 'Vodafone: SPOOKS are plugged DIRECTLY into our network' http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/06/06/how_vodafone_helps_spooks/
  2. I called a friend land-line to land-line. When he picked up the phone to answer there was a fax tone as if the phone line was connected to both phone and fax and he'd forgotten to switch off the fax and my call triggering the fax answering mode. He hasn't got a fax! neither have I. My thoughts - he's quite involved in some sensitive work uncovering some rather 'messy' stuff in a finance company and they know he's putting them in a difficult position - it's big money! The only way I see a fax machine kicking in is if someone tapped/hacked his phone and had a fax themselves they too had forgotten to switch off. I've had faxes since they were invented and cost £1200 back in the 80's so I know how they kick in, but in these days of digital telephone lines how could a fax machine kick in on a land line to land line when neither of us had one? That's my question. How and is his phone being tapped? He says this has happened a few times before. We don't have crossed lines anymore since it all went digital so how does this happen? If it is being tapped or hacked I think they now call it, how or what does he need to do to find out if it is? Any of you telephone techi's have any ideas - I'd really appreciate knowing how we can find out. Thank you. A1
