Understanding Mobile Hacking Helps in Mobile Protection
Hacking of the mobile, in the simplistic terms, is the remote access to someone else’s mobile phone which is unauthorized and is intended to manipulate or damage the same. The glitches in the phone chips pave way for Mobile Hacking and also the susceptibility of the wireless devices like that of Bluetooth. This is done intentionally by the hacker and the reasons can be varied. Some do it to make free calls, some may do it to get the contact information and addresses of the people and some do it to destroy the phone software while a few do it just for the sake of it.
Definition of Hacking
Hacking any electronic device involves devising or modifying any computer program with good skill. Hacking thus involves the manipulation of the existing rules or programmes to get the results which are not anticipated by the actual programmer. According to the “PC magazine” hacking any device involves modification of the program that is not user programmable at all.
Of this most unethical practice in case of mobile phones is the use of Bluetooth. It provides an easy access to the hackers and enables remote access which enables the hacker to manipulate the programs easily. The next easy way for the hacker is to walk into the colony of the people with mobile phones, carrying a laptop with phone hacking software. With the help of small antenna and with little efforts, a hacker can get the mobiles hacked.
There is wrong notion among the people that hacking is only unethical while as the fact is that there is ethical hacking as well. This sort of hacking is done in a positive way either to protect the mobile or any other electronic device. It also helps to fix the problems associated with the mobile phones and also in the enhancement of any mobile software. Unethical way involves misuse of the technique where the hacker accesses the mobile phone without permission. The intention is to get the contact details and addresses of any person or several people. This also may be intended to damage the software etc.
