Hey all,

Pleas see http://thehackernews.com/2016/04/spy-phone-call-location.html

"In Brief
The famous ‘60 Minutes’ television show shocked some viewers Sunday evening when a team of German hackers demonstrated how they hacked into an iPhone used by U.S. Congressman, then recorded his phone calls and tracked his movement through Los Angeles.

Hackers leverage a security flaw in SS7 (Signalling System Seven) protocol that allows hackers to track phone locations, listen in on calls and text messages.
"

My question is basically; how would this be possible? What methods/coding/programs would be used?

*Edit* And when it says 'a security flaw in SS7', anyone know of this? What's the flaw?

Just find it fascinating!
