The evolution is exemplified by new advanced attack vectors against mobile communication and SIM cards:
Mobile calls and identities are known to be weakly protected, but network progressively rolled out patches to defeat hacking tools. We will discuss — and release — tools to measure whether these changes are effective.
SIM cards were identified as a remote exploitation risk this year: Unnoticed by the victim, an attacker can take control over a card by sending a few binary SMS. Network operators started filtering binary SMS and patched some of their weak SIM card configurations in response to vulnerability research. The talk looks at filtering evasion techniques and discloses new configuration vulnerabilities present in many cards world-wide.
