Hello,

Quick question:

Can a feature phone, such as the Nokia 105 (2015), which doesn't have a browser, GPS, bluetooth, WLAN, 3G, GPRS or EDGE, even be hacked remotely in any other way besides the GSM network? Is there any other "door", so to speak, to hacking the device remotely?

I see the device has an FM radio. Can it be used to gain access to the phone remotely?

I'd appreciate any helpful input on the subject. Thank you in advance!
:)

This was really helpful! Thank you. :)

So it turns out that if you want to reduce the chances of being tracked or recorded by anybody by 99%, you just have to throw away anything from your house which has a display.

I guess the most advanced piece of tech that there ever was, which can't be tracked easily, would be my friend's dad's Lada 2107.
It has neither SatNav, nor a radio. lol

Unfortunately yes, everything is able to be infiltrated nowadays.

 

Especially with manufacture's creating Toasters and crap which have wifi connectivity. Not even my sodding toast is safe anymore.

Haha yes, I can see somewhere in the not-so-distant future a newspaper article with a line which would go something like this:

...what ultimately brought the fraud to his capture by the police and ultimate demise, was the sound recordings the law-enforcers were able to get from his coffee maker...

lol

BTW, the NSA is having a hearing in front of congress right now. It is live and if you want to have a look at it, just type NSA in YouTube(yet another service which keeps track of your activities, albeit actually being really helpful in suggesting new videos to watch).

Cheers!
:)

That's one of the most intelectually deep ways of hacking and extracting information that I have ever heard of.
I honestly can't believe somebody got this whole idea in the first place.

I am not too worried about it though as this method, albeit undeniably smart, requires physical connection with the computer in order to install the malware first, whereas I am more worried about remote ways of hacking. Until then, noone can infiltrate my NES, connected to my feature-less TV. lol
