   Galileo GPS signal has been broken. The pseudo random number generator
   used to obscure the information stored in the Galileo GPS signal has
   been broken. From the article: 'Members of Cornell's Global
   Positioning System (GPS) Laboratory have cracked the so-called pseudo
   random number (PRN) codes of Europe's first global navigation
   satellite, despite efforts to keep the codes secret. That means free
   access for consumers who use navigation devices -- including handheld
   receivers and systems installed in vehicles -- that need PRNs to
   listen to satellites.'"
