Kevin's Security Scrapbook: TSCM Team Finds "Plug Bug" Eavesdropping Device

Kevin has a report on a new find we should all be on the look out for. It appears to be a variation on a parasitic bug that uses some version of a cell phone.device. I have seen one that used IP phone connections, but a cell is a new twist. It appears to be sold as a security device, which in some ways it is, so legal in some areas. I would think it would be hot to the touch even when not active but plugged in. A heat seeking instrument or Flir camera should be able to find it easily, as should an RF detector that works well with cell phones.
