Opportunities billing, or "I" lost. Finding people on the mobile phone.


In this article I will talk today about the possibilities of billing.
As usual, everyone starts to whine, that this is their first article, “I haven’t written this before, this is the first one”, do not judge strictly, etc. This we miss +).
I will only say that I was inspired to write. The same robbery of my friend prompted me, he was stopped at the phone with the necessary phone numbers.
Well, I'll start.


we all had a chance to lose the tubes, or people =), and we all were terribly upset. Who is on the expensive tube, and who is on the phone numbers of beautiful girls in the notebook And we had a terrible desire to find. I once watched the TV series "network", and there once they showed such a piece as a hacker was tracking down by phone number. And I was terribly curious if this was possible ??? It turned out maybe ... How is this done?
And so:
during our calls, all our conversations are recorded in the database of our mobile operator, with the subsequent processing of this information, that is, billing, etc. What can be useful to extract from this database you ask, I will answer you.
at our call the following data is recorded:
#number (# **) is the number of the tower or antenna on which our call was received
# azimuth (northeast, south) - this is the direction where our challenge is from
# removal (13m) - this is our distance from the tower measured in meters
# range (1800,1500) is our range on which we work not far from our tower.
# phone number (1234567) is our phone number
Have (9876543210) - the serial number of the phone
# brand (nokia, samsung) - phone model
# time (8.00) is our call time.
# further goes a lot of unnecessary information to us.

Although many admins disable some functions for system uploading their servers (they do not always have enough processor frequency and large RAM)

So, what interesting things can we learn from this information? How, having some tsiferki, direction, find out where a person is with an accuracy of 2 meters ??? you ask, I will answer you. In principle, to determine the dislocation of an object, we need only the first three parameters. This is the tower number, azimuth, and deletion. We need the latter to determine the object itself. How is it? There is a need to wisely, that is, we find a map of the city, find out the location and numbers of all antennas or towers, mark it all on the map.
Then (further, everything is already punishable by law and local authorities, under articles of unlawful use of the cellular company's servers, violation of privacy, and so on. Test, here as usual, I do not call for action, but give information for familiarization.). We find the site of our cellular company, and we pray that the site is hosted in the same domain space associated with our operator’s servers and camutator. Found Hack and get access to the database. Next, take the data and put them on the map. let's say we need to know where our dear friend is now. We know her phone number, there’s nothing more that we don’t need. Call her. Then we climb into the database, out of millions of calls using the amazing SQL language, we find our girlfriend. First, we narrow the time search range. We are looking for our friend’s number. Let's say it will look like this "union select time 17:30:45 namber 1234567 print result" we get a string with the time and the phone number and sequence number we need when it was written. We remember this sequence number, and we are already looking for it, looking full information, this is the tower number, azimuth removal, range (for example, №13, southeast, 13m, 1500). So we found out, we stamp to our map, we are looking for tower 13, in the southeast on the map we draw a line equal to 13 meters on the ground , at the end of the line is our victim, the right to privacy that we have already violated. n indicates the ground or under it is people, it is 1500 then girlfriend was at the entrance to the subway and went somewhere. Although an example was given here on a SQL database, the operator is free to choose and can use any other database at his discretion.

After a long search and surfing the Internet, I found only one Ukrainian operator who provided his subscribers with an opportunity to know for free where they are =). It was the Life operator (for some reason I associate with the word “high”), and only after setting up the phone. I don’t know who will be able to work (this feature doesn’t include all admins). But it’s like that.
(all settings were made on a Siemens phone)
enter in the phone: (Messages) => (settings) => (inform services) => (Enable reception at index) => enter a new channel with index 100 and save.
Further, the phone will show for example the following code: KH0004-2. Where KH is Kharkov region, 0004- Kharkiv (levada), 2 - 1800 range, therefore you are close to the station in Kharkov and work on the 1800 range near the station Levada.
It is a pity that the possibility of positioning is possible only for operators Life =). All codes and a description of them, as well as the setting can be found at the addresses:
in the topic of position Life.

{Outreach Conclusion}

In this article, an example was given of finding a person by phone number, you can also find a pinch in the same name. The bases themselves are protected by both administrators and security services, so if you get illegal access to one of these bases, don’t think get away with it. In general, it was not the approach to finding that was described here, but the vulnerability of our society. Where we all shout that democracy, freedom, together chanting shouts of joy. But in reality, this is only an illusion of freedom a fiction. Not exactly sure, but this technology of searching people only in a modified version is not used by almost all services. Of hykh, and where is this freedom ??? That's right ... In the city with the letter J. All the best.
