Saudi Telecom Sought U.S. Researcher’s Help in Spying on Mobile Users

“A prominent computer security researcher says he recently rejected a request by a Saudi telecommunications company to help it spy on mobile customers using social networking accounts such as Twitter.

The security researcher, who goes by the name Moxie Marlinspike and who recently left Twitter where he worked on that company’s security team, said he was contacted via email earlier this month by an employee of Mobily, a mobile phone operator in Saudi Arabia, seeking his help with a surveillance project the company was developing.”
