VODAFONE UK Network Compromised

The Hacker's Choice (http://www.thc.org) announced a security problem with Vodafone's Mobile Phone Network today. An attacker can listen to UK Vodafone mobile phone calls.
An attacker can exploit a vulnerability in 3G/UMTS/WCDMA - the latest and most secure mobile phone standard in use today. The technical details are available at http://wiki.thc.org/vodafone.
THC was not immediately available for comments but an associated member of the group commented that 'the problem lies within Vodafone's Sure Signal / Femto equipment'.A Femto Cell is a tiny little home router which boosts the 3G Phone signal. It's available from the Vodafone Store to any customer for 160 GBP.
THC managed to reverse engineer - a process of revealing the secrets - of the equipment. THC is now able to turn this Femto Cell into a full blown 3G/UMTC/WCDMA interception device.
