UNDATED—Cell phones are under attack by a flood of covert, internet software designed to use cell phones against their users by invading their privacy.

Hackers are working through relatively inexpensive programs that can be ordered online and allow anyone to gain access to the private conversations and messages of cell phone users. Such hijacking websites promise the user easy access to track a cheating spouse or anyone else. Experts say nearly all of today's cell phone spyware can be traced to China or Russia.

As NBC's Eric Mansfield reports it's easier than you may realize for someone to hack into your cell phone.
