SIM Card Hack Found

SIMS

A recent article in Forbes covers a German cryptographer that has reportedly found an exploit for SIM cards. The flaw could allow hackers to remotely infect a SIM with a virus that sends premium text messages (draining a mobile phone bill), surreptitiously re-direct and record calls, and carry out payment system fraud.

The article can be accessed by following the attached link:
