overwraith Posted April 29, 2015 Share Posted April 29, 2015 (edited) So you have all probably heard about this raspberry pi craze that has been going around, how people are making all sorts of intrusive devices that utilize raspberry pi's. My Question is in order to get a raspberry pi connected to the internet in order to do nefarious things doesn't the raspberry pi have to have some sort of 3g dongle? And if it does wouldn't the phone companies be able to connect the user's name to that particular device because they have a "contract" with the phone company? If I wanted to make a raspberry pi that recorded audio like a cold war bug, and it was found wouldn't my evil network be made as soon as the phone company queried it's database? I read somewhere that the user only looses about 35 dollars for every pi that gets discovered, but I just don't see them getting away with it if it has to connect to the phone company's network. I did a google search, and apparently somebody made a lamp which tweets private conversations. There's another thing, does the raspberry pi foundation map the mac's of which devices it sells in which transactions?
