The possibilities of billing, or "I" are lost. Finding people on a mobile phone.


In this article I’ll talk about the possibilities of billing today.
As usual, everyone begins to whine that this is their first article, “I have not written this before, this is the first”, do not judge strictly, etc. This we skip +).
I can only say what prompted me to write. The robbery of my friend also prompted me, they put up the phone with the necessary phone numbers.
Well, I’ll start.


we all happened to lose handsets, or people =), and we were all terribly upset. Someone on the expensive phone, and some on the phone numbers of beautiful girls in the notebook . And we had a terrible desire to find. I watched the series "network" at one time, and there they once showed such a trick as hackers tracked down by phone number. And I was eagerly curious if this was possible ??? maybe ... How is this done?
And so:
during our calls, all our negotiations are recorded in the database of our mobile operator, with subsequent processing of this information, that is, tariffing, etc. What can be learned from this database you ask, I will answer you.
when we call, the following data is recorded:
# number (№ **) - this is the number of the tower or antenna to which our call was received
# azimuth (northeast, south) —that is, this direction is where our call came from
# removal (13m) - this is our distance from the tower is measured in meters
# range (1800,1500) - our range on which we work is not far from our tower.
# phone number (1234567) is our phone number
# have (9876543210) - serial number of the phone
# brand (nokia, samsung) - phone model
# time (8.00) - time of our call.
# Next comes a bunch of information we do not need.

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

So, what can we learn from this information? How, having any numbers, direction, to find out where a person is located 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. The latter are needed to determine the object itself. How is it? We need to eat it wisely, that is, we find a map of the city, find out the location and numbers of all antennas or towers, mark this all with a map.
Then (everything further is already punishable by law and local authorities, under the articles of unlawful use of cellular company’s servers, violation of privacy, and the like. Father-in-law, here, as usual, I do not call for action, but give information for review.). We find the site of our cellular company, and pray that the site is hosted in the same domain space associated with the servers and switch of our operator. Found it. Hack and get access to the database. Then we take the data and put it on the map. Suppose we need to know in zare where our dear friend is now. We know her phone, no longer what we do not need. We call her. Next, we climb into the database, out of millions of calls using the amazing SQL language, we find our girlfriend. So first we narrow our search in time. We look for the number of our girlfriend. Suppose it looks like this: "union select time 17:30:45 namber 1234567 print result" we get a string with the time and the phone number we need and the serial number when it was recorded. We remember this serial number and we are already looking for it, looking full information, this is the tower number, bearing azimuth, range (for example, No. 13, southeast, 13m, 1500). So we found out, stomping to our map, looking for tower number 13, in the direction of the southeast, on the map, draw a line equal to 13 meters on the ground , at the end of the line is our victim, the privacy right 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 an SQL database, the operator is free to choose and can use any other database at his discretion.

After a long search and wandering around the Internet, I found only one Ukrainian operator, which provided its subscribers with the opportunity to know where they are = for free.) It was a Life operator (for some reason I associate it with the word buzz)), and even that only after setting up the phone. I don’t know who might be working (this feature isn’t exactly what all admins include). But this comes true.
(all settings were made on a Siemens phone)
enter the phone: (Messages) => (settings) => (service inform) => (Enable reception at the index point) => enter a new channel with index 100 and save.
Next, show the phone number for example such code: KH0004-2. Where KH is the Kharkiv region, 0004 is Kharkiv (Levada), 2 is the 1800 range, therefore you are near the station in Kharkov and work on the 1800 range near the Levada station.
It is a pity that the possibility of positioning is possible only for Life =) operators. All codes and a description of them, as well as the setting can be found at the addresses:
in the topic position life.

{Outro conclusion}

In this article, an example was given of finding a person by phone number, you can also find them in the pinch by email. The bases themselves are guarded by both administrators and security services, so if you get illegal access to one of these bases, don’t think that this is for you 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 scream that democracy, freedom, together chanting cries of joy. But in fact, this is just an illusion of freedom, a fiction. I’m not exactly sure, but this technology of searching people only in a modified version doesn’t use almost all services .Hykh, and where is this freedom ??? That's right ... In the city starting with the letter J. All the best.
