Egypt tries to hang up on killer SMS roumers


uk.news.yahoo.com

The Egyptian government has sought to dispel rumours that a mobile phone text message "from unknown foreign quarters" is spreading around the country and killing those who receive it.
The extraordinary move by Egypt's health and interior ministries follows press reports that an SMS containing a special combination of numbers killed a man in the town of Mallawi south of Cairo.

"He died vomiting blood,followed by stroke, shortly after he received a message from an unknown phone number,"

I am going along with the governments view that this is roumer, but wonder if such techology exists i.e some high pitched signal, that could cause brain injury or death ? Seems like something out of a James Bond movie, but I wouldn't be surprised if some boffin somewhere hasn't explored the possibilities

Maybe its not a audible signal at all. Perhaps when the text is opened, it sends the satellite a signal via the cell phone to lock in your position and fry you.

I cant believe that this is real. But i did watch a smallville episode where they would send a text message to someones phone and it pretty much hypnotised the person and input a message into their brain to kill some person and off they would go and try ot kill that person and once snapped out of their hypnotic state they wouldn't remember anything...

Hopefully this sort of technology will come out in the future available for all.... ;-P

Heh. Sounds kind of like Stephen King's book Cell. Except that that signal turned you into a crazy violence zombie and then you became part of a hive mind...or something.

Did you ever think, the message he just received.
Told him hes lost all his money in the stock market, and his wife has left him for his broker

That would be enough to kill anyone.

This was also on an episode of Fringe recently. In that the signal was a sent via computer virus. I don't think it's possible, but I don't know for sure. You would need prolonged exposure I think for it to harm you.
