TYPES OF ELECTRONIC BUGS
There 5 basic Types of Electronic Bugs:
ACCOUSTIC – An acoustic bug directly intercepts communications with the naked ear without the use of electronics. Common methods include the use of a water glass or a stethoscope placed on the wall. It is also used where sound leaks through windows, ventilation shafts and poorly installed power outlets.
VLF or ULTRASONIC BUG – This type of bug converts sounds into an audio signal that is slightly above the range of human hearing. The bug is then intercepted by a nearby device and converted back into human range audio. Here, simple audio pressure waves are used instead of creating a radio (RF) signal.
RF (RADIO FREQUENCY) BUG – This is the most well know type of bugging device. A radio device is hidden in a certain area or in some kind of device. Although they are cheap, disposable, easy to detect, they are also difficult to trace back to the individual who installed it. An accomplished TSCM technician can detect these devices but it takes time, even for the experts. Remember that a professionally conducted bug sweep typically takes hours and sometimes days to complete.
OPTICAL BUG – An optical bug is a device that converts sound into an optical pulse (beam of light). They can be active or passive laser listening devices. The good news is they are rarely used, easily detected and extremely expensive which basically limits them to governments and very high profile corporations.
HYBRID BUG – Any of the above bugging devices can be combined to create a Hybrid eavesdropping device.
