The Washington Post on National Security and IMSI Catchers Catchers.

Adrians ACSAC prepublication is picked up by the Washington Post:

There are rare occurrences when all these indicators are present without an IMSI catcher,” Dabrowski said. “But it’s a situation where you might say, ‘Let’s now be careful and not talk about sensitive things on the phone.’ It’s not a perfect indicator.”

He also warned that the makers of IMSI catchers will probably adapt their technology to defeat the new IMSI catcher-catchers, triggering “an arms race” in surveillance technology and the tools intended to defeat it.
