A hacked microwave oven displays “INSERT PHONE FOR VACATION.” Phones placed in a small copper box within the microwave receive WiFi beacon frames gathered at a remote site: the National Security Agency’s Utah Data Center. Often, these forged signals trick the phone’s geolocation logic, and the phone is virtually transported to the remote site. The smartphone then presumably sends this location information to Apple or Google, and then perhaps to the NSA’s Utah Data Center
