Open Source Cell Phone Hacking.

I have heard a lot about how "Cell phones are unsafe" and it is possible to turn on the mic/camera to listen in. I was wondering if there is any open source version of this sort of program. There are a lot of spy things you can buy to "catch a cheating spouse" (not interested) and I have been playing with Georgia Weidman's botnet (http://www.grmn00bs.com/SMSbotPoC-complete.c and http://georgiaweidman.com/wordpress/more-android-sms-bot-stuff/). While this is both fun and useful I have had a tough time sifting through all the crapware out there to find anything that has some of the more "fun" functions that we all worry about.

I'd look into more into 'Bluetooth hacking'.

have you checked out http://hak5.org/episodes/episode-626? there's a segment on gsm security, using a usrp you are essentially the phones tower and have control of the phone. what type of phone are you looking to hack? is it gsm or cdma? is it android or ios? those questions will help you find the right tools and right way to implement the botnet should you want to test that.
