Dear No Data,

Good article. Does this mean that whenever and wherever one sees a person wearing a tinfoil hat in the street, that one should assume that they are criminals trying to avoid Stingrays, rather than think they are being rather eccentric or on a jamboree or drunken carousel...:-).



P.S. I was rather intrigued as to how you managed to get "No Data" as an email address. Would you care to share it with us, as it seems to be a rather novel way of avoiding junk mail and offers of £10 billion dollars for avoiding the tax authorities and funding deserving causes on a commission.

the reg reports in a scottish prison, prisoners are blocking IMSI catchers with aluminum foil because the IMSI catchers were in plain view. Using the foil, they blocked the IMSI catchers line of sight.

Prisoners can be so innovative!

Report is here:


interesting tho, that it is just being reported now, but the source was a report from 2014
