Nohl said he and a colleague, Luca Melette, intercepted and decrypted wireless data using an inexpensive, modified, 7-year-old Motorola cellphone and several free software applications. The two intercepted and decrypted data traffic in a five-kilometer, or 3.1-mile, radius, Mr Nohl said.

The interceptor phone was used to test networks in Germany, Italy and other European countries that Mr Nohl declined to identify. In Germany, Mr Nohl said he was able to decrypt and read data transmissions on all four mobile networks – T-Mobile, O2 Germany, Vodafone and E-Plus.
