snydeq writes “AT&T says it won’t interfere with a highly anticipated talk on intercepting cell phone calls at the Black Hat conference this week. Hacker Chris Paget last week said that he plans to demonstrate on Saturday how to set up what’s essentially a fake cell tower that allows him listen in on nearby mobile calls. But Tuesday, he wrote on his blog that he had ‘heard that AT&T may be considering suing me to stop my talk.’ AT&T, however, has insisted it has no plans to interfere with the talk.”
