Apparently future-dated gps packets disable Stingray phone signal intercept devices. The device thinks its license has expired and locks up.

No...instead of finding your phone then you could just use DF gear to find you...

Perhaps. But surely one malformed signal burst every now and then wouldn't be easily located through DF.

Comrade! The bug ist solely wrought but for the precondition of Capitalistic endeavors (i.e. the periodic gouging of license renewals).

Would packet transmittal violate 18 USC 1030(a)(5)? Also would merely setting your phones date ahead cause it to send these packets?

As I'm not an attorney it's probably best that I not give a 1030(a)(5) opinion here. I'm not sure if a simple phone date would do it or not.
