The Greek organization IISA (Independent Information Security Authority) has fined Vodafone for wiretapping. The IISA is accusing Vodafone of tapping the conversations of around 100 people, including Greece's prime minister, cabinet, journalists and activists. This is not the first time Vodafone has been fined for wiretapping. The last time was during the 2004 Olympics in Athens. Vodafone claimed that it found the problems (illegal software), and cleaned them. Vodafone claims that the same illegal software is to blame for the current accusations, however the alleged wiretaps happened after all illegal software was removed from Vodafone's systems.

Could be that they are telling the truth, what benefit would they get from listening to people conversations, its more likely some terrorist organisation, etc!

They really need to look @ their security and maybe that will save them alot of hassle and their name being dragged through the mud!

Good thing they didn't tap my phone they would have been bored into submission by listening to me talk about what I had for lunch yesterday to my grandma. Either that or asking if uncle ray has taken his poop pills so he can go to the potty.
