Vodafone divulges mass tapping of phones

Vodafone (VOD) says that phones on its network are tapped in some of the 29 countries where it operates. The company exposed that secret wires allow government agencies to listen to live conversations and record them on its global network.

The company also states that customers have a right to privacy, but it still has to obey the laws of each country in which it operates. "Refusal to comply with a country's laws is not an option," says Vodafone.
