Default GPUs vs. Cellphone GSM

I just came across this. It's a couple of years old, but it shows one, ahh, possibly less wholesome purpose for distributed computing: http://www.bit-tech.net/news/bits/20...ed-gsm-crack/1.

And, according to security researcher Steve Gibson, they are (were?) even using NVIDIA graphics cards to crack the key! http://www.grc.com/sn/sn-213.htm (do a search for 'NVIDIA'). Plus, presumably, top-of-the-line GPUs have only gotten more powerful since then.

Read the whole SN transcript. If any of this is true, then it's a good thing I'm a semi-Luddite and only turn on my cell phone for emergencies...

Any thoughts? updates?

Will this all be a moot point when we switch to 4G?

Yes, project home here.
It uses specialized hardware for intercepting communications, rainbow tables and CUDA GPUs.
