    Zimperium researchers have unearthed three critical vulnerabilities in widely used software running on base transceiver stations (BTS), i.e. the equipment that makes cellphone towers work. Exploitation of these flaws could allow attackers to take remote control of the base transceiver stations, hijack GSM traffic, prevent the tower from offering service (by turning the transceiver module off or by jamming frequencies), disclose traffic information, change the BTS identity, and more. The vulnerabilities affect specific versions of … More →
