Some say that the phone hackers are having a harder time hacking phones. Others disagree. Phone hackers are a secretive bunch and usually do not broadcast their successes because of all the money they can make.
The question is - Why would anybody hack someone else’s phone? Well, the answer is easy. If the cell phone belongs to a famous celebrity, then there must be a whole lot of stuff on their phone for sale.
One technique that hackers use is called 'double screwing' which involves calling the same number at the same time. The first caller would make the line busy, leading the second caller directly to a voice mail prompt. After entering the voice mail password, the second caller gained access to the person’s messages. Simple codes like '1234' would then crack it and the hackers have hit the jackpot.
