This article from the New York Times seems to claim that calls are being
real-time tapped for keyword recognition and dropped if one repeats the
wrong word:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/22/world/asia/22china.html?_r=1


While it sounds scary, I don't actually believe it's currently deployable
on a mass scale. But it's the type of scenario that could become plausible
if we don't get our security acts together.

The NY Times article is linked from the Huffington Post, if that's easier
for you to follow (for some reason, coming in from HP skipped me past the
Time's paywall.)

Thanks, Geoff!
