The duo developed the tool to persuade handset manufacturers (more likely Google) to plug a security hole that lets hackers read the victims e-mails and text messages. They spent just two weeks to develop the root kit and distributed it on a DVD to the attendees of the Defcon hacker’s conference in Las Vegas.
